$34 Million Geared To Help Law Enforcement And Social Services

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. – U.S. Attorney Will Thompson announced a slew of grants awarded to several organizations based in Cabell County. All of the grants total about $3.4 million.

The grants pump federal dollars into the system to help law enforcement do their jobs better, including drug prevention and addition recovery efforts.

Huntington Police Chief Karl Colder spoke with WSAZ about how all of the grants awarded will not only help the individual agency but others, too.

Even our social services partners received grants for prevention that helps us we can send our community outreach officer with them, Colder said.

One grant HPD received allows the department to purchase a database to track shell casings from violent crimes and shootings.

So, if one were to shoot an individual or an area, we can take those casings place them in the system, and it would identify the weapon and trace it or track it to other crimes, Colder said.

Currently, Colder said that evidence cannot be analyzed in their department which lengthens investigations. The database is called the NIBIN program.

We now have to take all these casings to drive them to Charleston or another location, Colder said.

Cabell County Sheriff Zerkle said during the meeting that deputies respond to about 800 mental hygiene calls per year.

When you look at what Marshall University received in terms of forensics and genetics, that is going to help us as a law enforcement agency, Colder said.

We Invite You To Join The Farmers For The Hungry $10000 Challenge

About Alan Siebel

In some past years, HCM Board of Directors member, Dave Duffield, along with his granddaughter, Layla, celebrated his birthday, September 15, by providing and serving cakes to residents at the Huntington City Mission. This year due to the pandemic, Dave chose to celebrate, instead, by donating $5,000 to the Mission with this Challenge: to match all other combined donations in total up to that $5000 to raise funding for the Missions Farmers for the Hungry Program. This week, Chris Miller heard of this effort and asked to join in with Dave. Now, Chris and Daves combined $10,000 will challenge all other combined donations up to 10k for The Farmers for the Hungry Program. With this combined effort, we will raise $20,000 by using knowledge of Tax Law for the Farmers for The Hungry Program. Due to this combined Tax effect, we will, thus, reach our GOAL: over $73,000 worth of food raised to feed people in need.

The Farmers for the Hungry Program utilizes West Virginias Farm to Foodbank Tax Credits, plus Farmers Tax Deductions plus the HCMs Mirco Grants to the Farmer to make it feasible for Farmers to donate fresh meat and produce to the Mission and receive full payment for their goods. Although only recently implemented, several farmers have already joined the Program and donated several thousand dollars of inventory, which consists of 4,811 lbs. of beef which will provide nearly 24 thousand meals.
