Riverside County supervisors today authorized Sheriff Stan Sniff to accept a $43,000 U.S. Justice Department grant in support of coroner's operations.

"The grant funding will provide the county with resources to meet the challenges of crime and justice and reduce the backlog in the analysis of forensic evidence and to hold offenders accountable for their crimes,'' according to a sheriff's statement.

Agency documents stated that the funds were approved as part of annual disbursals from the National Institute of Justice's Paul Coverdell Forensic Science Improvement Grants Program.
