Toledo will recall 31 police officers with federal grant

Toledo will recall an additional 31 laid-off police officers Wednesday with funding from a federal grant, Mayor Carty Finkbeiner announced Saturday.

The grant, from the Justice Department’s COPS Hiring Recovery Program, is worth $7.1 million over three years. It requires the city to maintain a minimum manning level of 564 sworn officers for four years.

The city temporarily recalled 29 of its 75 laid-off officers July 1 with a federal Justice Assistance Grant, which funds the positions through the end of the year. By accepting the COPS grant, the city, which faces an $8.9 million deficit, is committing itself to retaining those officers beyond 2009.
