Governor Hogan Announces $150 Million Initiative to Increase Support for Law Enforcement

October 15th, 2021 by WCBC Radio

Governor Larry Hogan today announced a $150 million Re-Fund The Police Initiative to provide much-needed support and resources to state and local police agencies in their efforts to fight violent crime. Coming at an especially challenging time for members of law enforcement across the country, this initiative is the first in a series of announcements the governor will make to support the police and make neighborhoods safer.

“Trying to reduce crime by defunding the police is dangerous, radical, far-left lunacy,” said Governor Hogan. “The reality is that our police are underfunded and under attack. To reverse the tide of rising crime, we need to stop demonizing and sabotaging the dedicated men and women who risk their lives every single day to keep the rest of us safe. We cannot defund the police, we need to re-fund the police.”
