Recently, U.S. Senator Mark Dayton of Minnesota helped to restore the Edward Byrne Memorial State and Local Law Enforcement Assistance Grant programs . The Byrne grants are used to fund state and local police efforts to combat methamphetamine and other drugs. A portion of the money will be used for the Methamphetamine Hot Spots Initiative that will target meth production and trafficking in Minnesota. It will also be used to prevent meth production by targeting meth cooks and lab, cleanup of meth labs, prosecution of meth cooks and dealers, and expanding treatment options for addicts.
