NEWARK, N.J. — Police departments throughout New Jersey are getting an additional boost in funds this year as part of the federal stimulus package.
The state's law enforcement agencies are expected to receive a record-high $47.7 million out of $2 billion being distributed nationally, according to the Department of Justice. The money will be carved out of a $787 billion stimulus package President Obama signed into law last month.
