Indiana Receives Federal Grant to Combat ongoing Methamphetamine Production

The Indiana State Police is the recipient of a $567,000 federal grant to boost efforts in the fight against methamphetamine production and distribution.

U.S. Senator Joe Donnelly announced the reception of the grant on Monday afternoon which will allow the Department of Justice Office of Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS) Anti-Methamphetamine Program to investigate activities related to the ongoing methamphetamine issue in the state.

Supporting continued funding for the COPS Anti-Methamphetamine Program and funding for the DEA’s Clandestine Drug Laboratory Cleanup Program was one of Donnelly’s priorities for the fiscal year 2015 federal appropriations.

Indiana was only one of 10 states to receive this grant award.
