2012 Safe and Secure Communities Grant - Aberdeen Township

Aberdeen Township Council plans to apply for a NJ state grant from the Safe and Secure Communities program, according to Resolution 2012-52, which is a Consent Agenda item on the 24 Apr 2012 agenda.

The State's Division of Law and Public Safety describes this grant program as follows:

The Safe and Secure Communities Program, enacted into law in 1993, is designed to provide municipalities with funding to add law enforcement personnel vital to effective police operations and other crime related strategies as warranted by the needs of the community. The program allows for the funding of additional officers or funding of law enforcement support personnel which would free-up officers for direct law enforcement activities. Currently, there are approximately 160 municipalities receiving funds for 345 officers and 13 non-police support staff.

The amount of this year's SASC grant has yet to be released. The Township's anticipated and actual SASC grants since 2006 are published online as follows:
