Grand Junction's Police Chief is hoping federal stimulus dollars can help fund a project that could keep our streets safer.

Last night the Grand Junction City Council gave the department approval to apply for more than $254,000 dollars in stimulus grants to help pay for a new computer records system.

Officials say because local agencies and the jail currently use different systems, officers do not have access to all the information they need on the streets.

Officials say they've been working on this project for a long time and are hopeful the dollars will come their way.

The total cost of the new system is about $3.7 million.

Police officials say they're working on applying for stimulus dollars to fund other projects as well.
