Grant request for 10 new Peoria Police Officers

May 15, 2013

The Peoria Police Department is submitting a federal grant application for 10 new police officers. The Peoria City Council unanimously approved the application. But the city would have to pay 25% of the entry-level officers’ salaries and benefits in the first three years, and would be obligated to pay all expenses for the fourth year, while maintaining its staff number for the life of the grant.
