WASHINGTON – Congressman Ron Estes (R-Kansas) announced a $1 million grant to the Kansas Bureau of Investigation from the Department of Justice Office of Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS).
"Across the country, communities have been negatively impacted by the illegal distribution and use of methamphetamines, destroying families and lives," said Rep. Estes. "I'm thankful for the law enforcement agencies that work to protect Kansas from these atrocities through programs like the COPS Anti-Methamphetamine Program (CAMP) and am pleased that the Kansas Bureau of Investigation will have more resources to help end illicit methamphetamine activities."
On Background State agencies like the Kansas Bureau of Investigation are being awarded three years of funding through CAMP to support the location or investigation of illicit activities related to the manufacture and distribution of methamphetamine, including precursor diversion, laboratories, or methamphetamine trafficking.
Ron Estes is a 5th generation Kansan and represents Kansas’ 4th Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives. He serves on the House Committee on Ways and Means.
