Newark Police Department receives grant
Submitted By Newark PD
The Newark Police is pleased to announce that the California Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) has awarded a $27,800 grant to battle alcohol-related crimes. The funds will be used for both educational and enforcement purposes. Our hopes are to increase protection for youth and to bring problem locations into compliance.
The grant is one of 53 awarded in California to local law enforcement agencies through ABC's Grant Assistance Program (GAP), totaling $3 million.
The funds will be used to reduce the number of alcoholic beverage sales to minors, obviously intoxicated patrons, illegal solicitations of alcohol, and other criminal activities such as the sale and possession of illegal drugs.
