The Glendale City Council accepted $23,778 in federal funding to pay for equipment that will allow Glendale police detectives to more effectively investigate computer and Internet-related crimes.

The U.S. Department of Justice issues grants to local police agencies to improve public safety and reduce crime.

Police have used similar grants in the past to purchase “less lethal” weapon technology, training supplies, tactical equipment, digital evidence photography systems and update computer equipment.
