Pueblo Receives $875,000 Grant to Hire Law Enforcement Officers

Washington, DC – Senator Cory Gardner (R-CO) announced today that Pueblo, CO received an $875,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Justice’s COPS office through the COPS Hiring Program (CHP). The purpose of the CHP is to advance public safety by providing law enforcement agencies funding to hire new career law enforcement officers and increase their policing capabilities in local communities throughout the country. 

 

“Colorado’s law enforcement officers put their lives on the line daily and sacrifice so much to keep our communities safe,” said Gardner. “It’s so important that the law enforcement community has the resources it needs to support the officers and their policing activities. I’m thrilled Pueblo is receiving funding to hire new law enforcement officers and bolster their presence in the community.”
