Congressman Jim Costa announced Monday that the Mendota Police Department has been awarded $125,000 to hire an additional officer.

The grant, presented by the Department of Justice's Office of Community Oriented Policing Services, has previously helped police departments maintain forces.

Costa said this year the grant specifies that new hires must have served in the military in order to utilize veterans' skills learned while on active duty.
