Officials discuss COPS grant

White Hall Police Department would benefit from funds

WHITE HALL — Town officials are looking at applying for a grant that could benefit White Hall’s police department.

During Monday’s meeting, town recorder Charlie Mason read a resolution that stated the town would apply for a Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS) grant from the U.S. Department of Justice.

The grant would provide funding for hiring law enforcement if the Department of Justice approves the grant for White Hall. The deadline to submit the grant is May 22 and a response from the Department of Justice would take at least three months.

If approved, the Department of Justice would provide funding for White Hall to hire up to three full-time police officers.

Mayor Jesse Corley said the Department of Justice could approve the town to hire no officers or one, two or three full-time officers.

“We may get one position or three positions,” he said.

If the town is approved for one or more officers, council can accept the offer or reject it.

White Hall police chief Geno Guerrieri said the grant would pay for 75 percent of the officers’ salary.
