The Grants Division oversees the development and implementation of agency projects funded through outside sources. Annually, the Division secures approximately eight million dollars in funding and contributions for projects that support crime prevention and reduction, traffic enforcement, highway safety, and homeland security.
In addition to managing grants for the State Patrol, the Grants Division subgrants funds to other state and local governmental agencies across Nebraska for a wide variety of law enforcement efforts.
As an agency liaison, the Grants Division works closely with the Nebraska State Patrol Foundation to secure contributions from private individuals, businesses, county drug boards, and non-profit organizations. These donations further the mission of the Nebraska State Patrol where government funding cannot, providing for advanced officer equipment and training, police service dogs, and community education.
