LPD To Receive $73K Federal Grant For Officer Wellness
The Lubbock Police Department is set to receive a $73,407 federal grant for the Lubbock Peer Support Project.
This funding comes from the Department of Justice's Office of Community Oriented Policing Services' (COPS Office) Law Enforcement Mental Health and Wellness Act Program.
It is intended to focus on improving the delivery of and access to mental health and wellness services for law enforcement.
Senator John Cornyn said:
Because we rely on first responders to keep our communities safe, it is critical that we provide them with the tools they need to do their job [...] We ask our law enforcement officers to do too much so I will continue working to ensure police in Lubbock don’t go without the support they need.
