Washington D.C.
Cornyn: $2.1M in Grant Funding Coming to Support Texas Law Enforcement Officers
Press Release
Tuesday, November 27, 2018

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) released the following statement after the U.S. Department of Justice announced $2,151,599.51 in federal grants to promote the health and safety of Texas law enforcement officers.  The grants, awarded by the Department of Justice’s Office of Justice Programs (OJP), will be used to protect officers and improve overall public safety.   

“Because we rely on law enforcement officers to keep our communities safe, we must place an equal premium on their personal safety and well-being,” said Sen. Cornyn.  “These grants send a message to the men and women who put themselves at risk each day that we have their back, too.  I thank the Trump Administration for supporting Texas’ men and women in uniform.”  

These grants include funding for the Bulletproof Vest Partnership Program, the reauthorization of which Sen. Cornyn co-sponsored in the Senate.  

The full list of grant recipients, including 247 jurisdictions in Texas, can be found here.  

Senator John Cornyn, a Republican from Texas, is a member of the Senate Finance, Intelligence, and Judiciary Committees.
