$1 million grant to help fight crime in NYS

A nearly $1 million grant will help fight crime in New York State.

Governor Andrew Cuomo announced Tuesday that $976,790 will be split among 31 law enforcement agencies as part of “Operation Impact Tools Grants.”

Grants in our area will go to police in Colonie, Glenville, Niskayuna, Rensselaer, and the Washington County Sheriff’s Department. Each one will receive a grant between $18,200 and $50,000.

The counties who were able to apply have higher crime rates and were not already funded by the Operation Impact or GIVE programs.

The governor says the money will help fight and prevent crime by giving agencies the tools they need.
