The Dallas Police Department will be getting a grant, according to Governor Greg Abbott's office.
The Homeland Security Grants Division, within Governor Abbott's office, has awarded Dallas over $1 million in grant funds for protective equipment. This grant comes in addition to a $616,000 grant awarded in November for protective gear.
Abbott announced the grant in a press release.
"Police officers and first responders need to know the State of Texas will do everything possible to ensure they are fully equipped to do a very dangerous, but very important job," said Governor Abbott. "What the attack in Dallas last year showed us is that more needs to be done to protect the brave men and women who run into danger and not away from it. I hope that these grants will help address some of the needs of our men and women in blue, and look forward to doing even more this legislative session that shows Texas has their back."
