Abraham announces $128,000 for West Carroll and Washington Parish law enforcement agencies
WASHINGTON - Congressman Ralph Abraham, M.D., R-Alto, today announced that law enforcement agencies in West Carroll and Washington Parishes will receive $128,000 to purchase new police cars.
Both grants come from the US Department of Agriculture’s Community Facilities Grant Program.
“Our law enforcement officers do so much to keep our communities safe, so it is important that they have the resources they need to keep up their good work. I appreciate Sec. Sonny Perdue and the USDA for awarding these funds to West Carroll and Washington Parishes,” Dr. Abraham said.
The West Carroll Parish Law Enforcement District will receive about $53,000 to purchase two new police cars and equipment. The grant will cover most of the $71,000 project. The law enforcement district will cover the rest, about $17,700.
The Town of Franklinton will receive $75,000 to purchase two new police cars and equipment. It will cover the entire cost of the project.
