The city of Rochester will receive $201,254 in federal funding for anti-crime initiatives, Sens. Charles E. Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand announced Friday.
The funding, allocated by the U.S. Department of Justice Office of Justice Programs, will support safety initiatives to improve the Rochester Police Department’s services for witnesses and victims of crime and support “Operation Nightwatch,” of Monroe County, to better monitor the activities of individuals on probation.
“I want to thank Senator Gillibrand and Senator Schumer for their continued advocacy on behalf of our children and families,” said Mayor Lovely A. Warren. “Their safety is of utmost concern to this administration.”
