KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- Kalamazoo Public Safety has been awarded 1.25-million dollars by the U.S. Department of Justice as part of the Community Oriented Policing Services program.  The funds will allow the retention of several current Public Safety Officers.

The COPS program provides salaries and benefits to officers and deputies in departments across the nation for three years at a time.  Grants are awarded by the Justice Department after taking into account each community's fiscal needs, local crime rates, and community policing plans.

263 agencies nationwide are receiving the funding, and just seven of those are in Michigan.
