JPD could get state money for more officers and cars

JACKSON, MS (WLBT) -  A state lawmaker wants to see 5 million dollars go to the Jackson Police Department.  

Representative Adrienne Wooten says the money should be used to hire more officers and buy more patrol cars. Wooten introduced House Bill 433 which is still in committee.  

The bill says the money should be paid by the State Treasurer out of money in the general fund. 

If the measure passes it would go into effect July 1, 2015.
