Pauma Tribe to Receive Federal Grant Toward Crime Prevention

Sacramento Bee
SAN DIEGO — The Pauma Band of Luiseno Indians will receive a $338,050 grant from the Department of Justice toward prevention of alcohol and substance-abuse related crimes.

Announced in September, 2010, the grant — part of $127 million given to tribes nationwide to improve public safety and criminal justice — was awarded through the Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS) Tribal Resource Grant Program. COPS is a DOJ office that advances the practice of community policing in U.S. state, local and tribal law enforcement agencies.

“This process has been an important and efficient step toward improving the safety of our community, and building and maintaining an effective and nation-to-nation relationship,” said Pauma Tribal Chairman Chris Devers. The Pauma Tribe plans to use the money toward improving community policing by hiring and training new officers, and purchasing new equipment and vehicles, with the goal to target and reduce alcohol and substance abuse-related incidents.
