CONCORD, N.H. — State and local law enforcement agencies received some unexpected good news: The federal stimulus package is bringing them $9.8 million for crime fighting, education, technology and prevention programs.

The money is part of the Edward Byrne federal grant, created in 1988 for a fallen New York City police officer. The state Department of Justice and some local departments get Byrne awards each year but never in amounts as high as this year.
