Police await stimulus funds
Ruston Police Chief Steve Rogers said the funds would help immensely.
“That’s a big, big boost,” Rogers said. “Anytime we can get money, we’re excited, especially the way the economy is.”
Rogers could not specify how funds from the grant money might be used, although he suggested they might go toward equipment or technology.
Since the funds are not re-occurring, Rogers said he would be reluctant to use the money to hire additional personnel.
