OKLAHOMA CITY -

Several Oklahoma law enforcement agencies have been given extra resources to fight crimes and keep you safe.

The Oklahoma City Police Department is one of nine police departments across the state to receive this grant from the Oklahoma Attorney General's office.

The Safe Oklahoma Grant program will help these different agencies target areas where there are high violent crimes such as rape, murder, robbery, aggravated assault.

The departments will now have more money to spend on overtime for officers, technology and anything to help analyze data.

Receiving the grant along with Oklahoma City Police are police departments in Bartlesville, Broken Arrow, Chickasha, Durant, Midwest City, Sapulpa and Tulsa, as well as the Bryan County Sheriff's office. All of them had to submit an 11-page application back in March and will split about $1 million.

It's not clear how much Oklahoma City police will get. This is the 3rd time the department has been awarded this money.
