US Funds $111M to Hire Vets as Cops


The Justice Department announced Monday it is awarding $111 million in grants to hire 800 U.S. military veterans for law enforcement positions.

The grants, awarded by the Justice Department's Office of Community Oriented Policing Service, are part of President Barack Obama's initiative to put veterans to work in jobs utilizing skills they learned in the military, a news release from office said.

"Today, we step up our support for recent veterans by offering them the chance to pursue meaningful careers in law enforcement," Attorney General Eric Holder said. "At a time of budget shortfalls, these grants will provide opportunities for much-needed, highly-trained professionals -- with a proven commitment to service -- to continue their careers in communities all across the country."

The funds will create more than 600 new law enforcement jobs and will save another 200 positions in jeopardy of being cut or recently lost due to local budget cuts, the release said.
