Law enforcement agencies receive funding from Manitoba government

Funding from the Manitoba government is going towards crime prevention in the northern part of the province.

On Monday, justice minister Matt Wiebe said that financial support will come in the form of $265,000 to help rural law enforcement agencies get safety equipment and run several community initiatives.

The money will come out of the Criminal Property Forfeiture Fun, which uses proceeds from the sale of criminal property.
