The Pinal County Sheriff’s Department in Arizona successfully resolved a funding issue by securing federal reimbursement grants worth $150,000.
In a recent video shared on X, formerly known as Twitter, Sheriff Mark Lamb accused Gov. Katie Hobbs of withholding the funds.
According to Lamb, in the past, their organization has relied on grant funding from the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety to support their initiatives. Specifically, during the holiday season, they utilized these funds to establish a DUI task force. This involved deploying additional patrols and officers to identify and apprehend individuals who were driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Unfortunately, Lamb revealed that these crucial grant funds have been reduced or eliminated.
According to a spokesperson from Hobbs, there was a breakdown in communication, resulting in a change to the process of distributing federal funds.
There were no cuts made to the grant funds.
