Grant That Funded Local Cold Case Unit Ends 9-30-2010

Thursday was the last day on the job for members of the Flint and Saginaw cold case team.
A $500,000 police grant from the National Institute of Justice to fund investigators from the state police and city of Flint and Saginaw police departments was not renewed.
Since the team was formed in 2008, detectives looked into more than 100 cases, made four homicide arrests and have three more that are pending.
The grant helped pay for overtime for evidence technicians, lab supplies, scientific analysis software and extradition costs.
The agency could reapply for the grant in 2011.
