Mich. receives $6 million from U.S. to fight crime

LANSING (AP) -- Gov. Rick Snyder says that criminal justice agencies in Michigan are sharing $6 million in federal grants for anti-drug and anti-crime efforts.

Snyder said the grants announced Monday come through the Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant Program and the Residential Substance Abuse Treatment for State Prisoners Program.

He says the grants "will be used to enhance public safety ... combating drug abuse and violence" and "will help build stronger communities."

Byrne grants are named in honor of New York City police Officer Edward Byrne.
