|Police Department Awarded Grant||Department: Police|
The Stockton Police Department has been awarded a $600,000 grant from the California Board of State and Community Corrections. Stockton was one of only 10 law enforcement agencies state-wide to receive grants awarded for the purpose of strengthening law enforcement and community relations.
“We are very pleased to have been selected to receive this grant,” shared Chief Eric Jones. “It will assist us with specific aspects of the Marshall Plan on Crime and violence reduction through Ceasefire. We will continue our procedural justice, police legitimacy and implicit bias training and partner with local non-profits that are uniquely positioned and have proven success working with individuals who are at very highest risk of violence, as well as their families and the community most affected by their actions.”
