The Pierce County County will talk Tuesday about how the Pierce County Sheriff’s Department plans to spend more than a million in federal grant money.

A resolution endorsing the Sheriff’s Department’s acceptance of the $1,083,891.50 grant is on the council’s agenda.

We wrote about the grant and the department’s (and other law enforcement agencies) plan to spend the grant money. Find that story here and the sidebar here.
