Mayor Nutter announced yesterday that the city would spend $13.5 million in federal stimulus money to fund public-safety programs and save 52 court positions eliminated in budget cuts.
The Police Department will get more than $4 million for equipment and training and the establishment of a real-time crime-analysis center.
