ROCKFORD (WREX) -

Rockford, along with 12 other Illinois cities, has received grant money from the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) to support local law enforcement.

The cities each received the Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant, which was named for a young officer killed in the line of duty. The goal of the grants is to support a variety of activities to help prevent and control crime while improving the justice system.

Rockford received $203,307 in grant money. The funds will go toward the purchase of mobile data computers, software upgrades, and training for personnel.
