LANSING, Mich., Oct. 12, 2021 — Following Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s announcement that the Brownstown police department would be receiving nearly $75,000 in grants to help increase accreditation, state Rep. Darrin Camilleri (D-Trenton) issued the following statement:
“Police officers are the first to arrive at the scene of a crisis. This grant will provide Brownstown PD with further resources to de-escalate conflicts within our community and provide additional training to our officers as they work to better serve residents. I’m proud of this investment in our local police, and excited to see the positive impacts across Brownstown in the months and years ahead.”
Building on the MI Safe Communities Plan to reduce violent crime, over $1 million in grants will be dispersed to police agencies across Michigan to boost public safety initiatives and support law enforcement agencies seeking accreditation.
