Sioux City police will ask the city council for approval to apply for two grants on Monday.
SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -
The Sioux City police department is hoping for state and federal funds to keep a couple of their programs going.
The first grant is the "Stop Violence Against Women" grant. The department has had a partnership with the group for years, and the program has helped provide support for victims and their families during times of crisis.
It's a partnership Sioux City's police chief hopes will get approval.
"This grant, the way we've written it up, allows us to keep her in house and available for our needs as well as the needs of Woodbury County," said Doug Young, Sioux City's police chief. "So, we're looking forward to trying to keep her in house."
The other grant comes from the Iowa Governor's Traffic Safety Bureau. The department is asking for about $44,000 to help combat drunk driving, and encourage seat belt use.
The grant would help pay for the overtime for city police officers, and get new software to help the city enforce those violations.
