St. Paul police tie violence to light-rail line in federal grant request

 

Anthony Souffle - Star Tribune file

A Green Line train arrived at the Robert Street Station in St. Paul.

A St. Paul police application for federal law enforcement funds has drawn attention for linking violence to "organized crime" and the Green Line as part of a grant pitch backed by a California-based company that sells gunshot detection systems.

St. Paul police say they are seeking the $750,000 Justice Department grant to boost investigations and prosecutions of gun violence through better ballistics evidence and data from gunfire location technology.
