A new federal law enforcement grant will be used to enhance police foot, bike and vehicle patrols in the city.

Tuesday morning, Congressman Jim Himes joined Mayor Harry Rilling to announce the $41,249 grant awarded through the Justice Department’s Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant (JAG) program. 

The grant will be used to enhance police visibility in high-crime areas and improve street and motor vehicle safety.

“Keeping our people and our communities safe is our top priority,” Himes said. “This JAG grant will help give the Norwalk Police Department the resources it needs to support the officers that put themselves in harm’s way every day to protect us and ensure that our laws are being followed.  

Mayor Harry Rilling said. “These funds will be used to support police officers and increase public safety in our community, and we are truly appreciative.”
