City backs grant for auto theft task force

WYOMING, Mich.—The City of Wyoming is getting grant money to help curb vehicle thefts.

During its regular meeting Jan.6, the city council unanimously approved a resolution to accept $71,022 in grant funding to dedicate a detective to the Combined Auto Theft Team.  The task force is comprised of multiple communities and operates out of Grand Rapids.

The funding comes from grants awarded to Grand Rapids by the state’s Automobile Theft Prevention Authority.  Since the ATPA’s inception in 1986, the group claims auto thefts have fallen 65.2 percent, from 72,021 to 25,048 per year.
