Monroe County Receives $173,020 Grant to Reduce Motor Vehicle Theft

By Staff –

 

AutoTheft-HeroMonroe County has received a $173,020 grant to reduce motor vehicle theft and insurance fraud, as part of a larger $3.7 million state initiative.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo has awarded the grants to police departments, local sheriffs’ offices and district attorneys’ offices in 12 counties throughout New York state.

“I want to thank Gov. Cuomo and the New York State Motor Vehicle Theft and Insurance Fraud Prevention Board for awarding the Rochester Police Department, and our partners in the Monroe County District Attorney’s Office and the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office, with $173,020 to combat motor vehicle theft and insurance fraud,” Mayor Lovely Warren said in a statement. “These crimes have a disproportionate effect on people living in poverty because they add to the cost of owning and operating a motor vehicle, which makes it more difficult to find and keep a job. I am grateful that our governor recognizes the true social impact of motor vehicle theft and insurance fraud, and is taking proactive steps to reduce them.”

“Agencies and organizations will use the grants in a variety of ways, including to support all or a portion of the salaries of assistant district attorneys and investigators specifically assigned to handle motor vehicle theft and insurance fraud cases; pay overtime for enhanced enforcement and sting operations; and offer specialized training for prosecutors, police officers and investigators,” the governor’s office said. “The funding also aims to foster inter-agency cooperation during theft and fraud investigations in the target counties. In applying for funding, agencies must outline how they will use the grant to work with other law enforcement entities in their county or region.”

The Monroe County District Attorney’s Office, Monroe County Sheriff’s Office, and Rochester Police Department will share the county’s award.

The grant contract for the awards will coincide with the 2018 calendar year and has two, optional one-year renewals.
