COPS HIRING GRANT

LMPD - COPS Grant

The City of La Marque & La Marque Police Department has been approved and awarded for the 2022 COPS Hiring Program in the amount of $750,000.

COPS HIRING GRANT

On behalf of the Attorney General of the United States, Merrick B. Garland, and the Office of Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS Office), the City of La Marque & La Marque Police Department has been approved and awarded for the 2022 COPS Hiring Program in the amount of $750,000.

At the COPS Office, the mission is advancing community policing nationwide. We prioritize this by supporting state, local, tribal, and territorial law enforcement agencies as they carry out their vital public safety missions. The project you will implement with these award funds contributes to the mission of the COPS Office, and the greater goal of reducing crime and building trust between law enforcement and their communities.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Working creatively our project will consist of forming two-three Officer teams that are trained and competent in both special response operations (i.e., directed patrols) to interdict crime and drug hot-spots (especially those producing violent crimes), and community-oriented policing to develop a genuine proactive partnership between the police department and the community.

Consequently, both teams will conduct directed patrol actions targeting crime and drug hot spots two days each week. Additionally, two days each week these specific team members will be assigned to perform as Community Policing Officers working in specific neighborhoods within our city.
