FSW-Presents-One-Million-DoCongresswoman Frederica S. Wilson presents $1,000,000 Crime Fighting Grant to the Miami-Dade County Police Department – Congresswoman Frederica S. Wilson (FL-24) will present the Miami-Dade County Police Department (MDPD) with a $1,000,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Justice to help reduce crime and violence in the county’s highest crime area, the Northside District. The check was presented Nov. 6 at the Northside District Station, 799 N.W. 81 St. Miami, Fla. Congresswoman Wilson worked closely with the MDPD to secure the grant issued under the Byrne Criminal Justice Innovation Program (BCJI). In a May 2014 letter, Congresswoman Wilson described the challenges facing the Northside District and urged the U.S. Department of Justice to fund MDPD’s proposed solutions “This is much-needed funding that will support cross-sector partnerships and innovative strategies to tackle crime and violence in the Northside District.  I commend the Miami-Dade County Police Department and their partners for their work to make the Northside District a safer place to live, work, and raise a family,” said Congresswoman Wilson.
