The grants were part of $7.8 million that the Baker-Polito administration allocated Tuesday, Nov. 24, to provide access to equipment and strengthen training, crime prevention and enforcement initiatives across the Commonwealth.

The NHTSA provided $3.2 million to fund traffic-enforcement campaigns, safety equipment and nonenforcement activities to help reduce vehicle crashes and the resulting injuries and loss of life. The funds are allocated to local agencies by the state.
