State Rep. Mike Loychik (R-Bazetta) announces significant funding for the Trumbull County Prosecutor’s Office to help reduce violent crime throughout the community. The funding stems from the Ohio Violent Crime Reduction Grant Program.
“I have been an adamant supporter of our law enforcement who keeps our families and residents safe,” Loychik said. “These dollars will be put to good use by enhancing the safety and protection of our communities throughout Trumbull County.”
Loychik supported House Bill 110, the state operating budget, which is funding the program to assist local law enforcement in finding solutions to reduce violent crime. The program funding will help the department in recruiting new officers, maintaining staffing levels and providing various assistance to prevent violent crime.
The Trumbull County Prosecutor’s Office is set to receive $495,151 through the grant program.
Overall, the program will be awarding a total of $58 million across the state. This most recent round of funding awarded $5.7 million to 16 local and state law enforcement agencies, including the Trumbull County Prosecutor’s Office.
