Del. officials announce justice assistance grants

    Delaware officials are set to announce the latest round of federal crime-fighting grants for law enforcement agencies in the state.

    Members of Delaware’s congressional delegation planned to join other officials today to announce the state’s Justice Assistance Grant recipients for this year.


    The JAG Program was created by Congress in 2004 to streamline justice funding and grant administrations.

    The Delaware Criminal Justice Council received a JAG grant of almost $1.3 billion last year.

    Local law enforcement agencies across the state shared more than $700,000 in additional grant funds.
