12 - 23 - 2013 Grant money awarded to Lewistown Borough Police
[LS] - After being put on a hold resulting from the recent government shutdown, 3 Federal grants are finally on their way to the Lewistown Police Dept. The funding was awarded months ago after the applications were submitted back in March of 2013 & 2012. Lewistown Police Chief Bill Herkert said funding is now on its way for PA Liquor Control Board grant, the Office of Community Oriented Policing Services grant, & School Resource Officer grant. He told the Lewistown Sentinel that "we can now work with how we are going to use it, but the backlog is slowing the distribution of it."
