The Gretna Police Department has been awarded a $254,000 federal grant, Police Chief Arthur Lawson said.
The Criminal Justice Infrastructure Recovery grant was awarded three weeks ago by the federal Bureau of Justice Assistance through the Louisiana Commission on Law Enforcement, Lawson said. The bureau is an arm of the U.S. Justice Department.
