Flint Police Department seeks to hire more officers and regain control of 911


Flint, MI– The Flint Police Department hopes to use American Rescue Plan Act funding to regain control of 911 for the city and fund various public safety initiatives.

The city has learned it will receive $94.7 million in ARPA funding as part of a $1.9 trillion economic stimulus package intended to help the country recover from the pandemic. Although the money is tied to COVID-19, the city can use it to tackle other issues, including public safety.

During a budget hearing for the police department on April 14, members of the Flint City Council suggested finding ways to use ARPA funds to support police and reduce overall city spending. .
