Grants take aim at gun violence
The Oneida County District Attorney’s Office and three other local agencies have received another round of funding from the state for a program that targets gun violence in Utica.
The DA, Utica Police Department, Sheriff’s Office and county Probation Department will share $618,036 through the Gun Involved Violence Elimination initiative. The program provides technical assistance, training, equipment, and personnel, such as prosecutors and crime analysts, to help communities reduce violent crime.
Locally, the money has been used on a variety of subjects ranging from purchasing pole-mounted cameras to paying salaries for employees and overtime to focusing on gun-involved crime.
On Tuesday, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo announced more than $13.3 million in funding awarded to help law enforcement agencies in the 17 counties that participate in GIVE. Now in its fourth year, GIVE is the successor to Operation IMPACT.
