HERMANTOWN, MN – Today, Congressman Pete Stauber (MN-08) announced that the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension will receive a $1,192,245 grant from the 2019 Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS) Anti-Heroin Task Force Program. Specifically, these funds will be used for drug enforcement purposes, including investigations and activities related to the unlawful distribution of heroin and prescription opioids.

Of this grant, Congressman Stauber stated, “As a former Duluth police officer, I know from firsthand experience that our law enforcement officers are doing everything in their power to combat the drug crisis ravaging our communities, but they need help. That’s why I am so glad to announce this much-needed investment in our community. This grant money will supplement the great work already being done by Minnesota’s law enforcement officers, helping to drastically reduce the distribution and use of heroin and other illicit drugs.”

Earlier this year, Congressman Stauber sent a letter requesting sufficient funding for the COPS programs. Click HERE to read the letter.
