GARY, Ind. (AP) - The U.S. Department of Justice has awarded $300,000 jointly to Indiana University Northwest and the police departments of Gary, East Chicago and South Bend to fight crime in northern Indiana.

U.S. Attorney David Capp says the goal of the project is to reduce youth gang and gun crime throughout the Northern District of Indiana.

The (Munster) Times reports (https://bit.ly/1obldqb ) the grant is part of the Justice Department’s Project Safe Neighborhoods initiative that encourages partnerships between federal prosecutors and local law enforcement agencies.

Capp says the police departments will use state-of-the-art methods in collaboration with experts at IU-Northwest to analyze criminal activity and improve information sharing among law enforcement agencies.
