MERIDIAN, Miss. — The city of Meridian was awarded a $75,000 grant by the Mississippi Office of Homeland Security that will be used to provide training for police, firefighters and emergency medical personnel.
"These grants help us in so many ways, mainly to give our people the training they need and secondly to validate the use of the Meridian/Lauderdale County Public Safety Training Facility," said Tim Miller, chief administrative officer for the City of Meridian.
