Grant provides Fairbanks police with resources for fighting domestic violence

Police will use a new grant to better follow up on domestic violence cases.  A 300 thousand dollar award from the U.S. Department of Justice will pay for a full time investigator as well as Domestic Violence response training for local police.  Project Director Lieutenant Tara Tippet, says the investigator will be able to take on aspects of response police currently don’t have time for, like reviewing domestic violence cases and reports.
