By Mara Stine
The $879,000 grant awarded to Gresham police is part of $243 million in grants given to 238 law enforcement agencies across the nation through the Community Oriented Police Services Hiring Recovery Program, said Laura Shepard, city spokeswoman.
It allows the Gresham Police Department to hire three additional officers with no local matching funds required.
