The Indiana Criminal Justice Institute wants a $300,000 grant to map the high crime areas in Hammond, East Chicago and Gary, and the chiefs think this is a great thing?
Can't you just ask any officer from any of these departments and they could tell you this information? Or shouldn't the chiefs and their staffs who already draw a salary be able to come up with this information?
Just another example of wasting taxpayers money on foolish federal grants!
