Roughly $5 million in law enforcement grants have been awarded to sheriff offices and other agencies in North Dakota's oil-rich Bakken region.

Roughly $5 million in state grants have been awarded to sheriff offices and other law enforcement agencies in North Dakota’s oil-rich Bakken region by the Board of University and School Lands (Land Board).

Additionally, around $100,000 has been awarded to law enforcement agencies that serve growing populations statewide.

“These grants are part of a larger strategy to help our local officials and community leaders address the challenges that come with growth,” Dalrymple says. “With the Energy Impact Fund, we can tackle a wide range of challenges. We continue to make significant progress, but we recognize that the impacts from rapid growth are very dynamic and we must always be prepared to adapt our response to meet the region’s needs.”

The law enforcement grants will go to sheriff offices, police departments, state attorney offices and regional law enforcement task forces.
