Stimulus grant to fund new Ark. state police copter
By Chad Day
Arkansas law enforcement agencies received $9.6 million in federal stimulus grants Thursday, including $3.5 million for a new Arkansas State Police helicopter.
The funding from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act through the Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant program was badly needed, said state police spokesman Bill Sadler.
