UPD Gets Grant for G.R.E.A.T. Program

The City of Ukiah Police Department has been awarded a $2000 grant from Walmart Giving to support their Gang Resistance Education And Training Program. G.R.E.A.T. is a 13-lesson middle school curriculum and 6-lesson elementary school curriculum which is designed as an immunization against delinquency, youth violence, and gang membership for children in the years immediately before the prime ages for introduction into gangs and delinquent behavior. The funds from this grant will be utilized to supply the G.R.E.A.T. students with graduation parties to celebrate their completion of this structured program.
