LARGO - An $18,000 Justice Assistance Grant was awarded to the Largo Police Department and will be used to increase police visibility along the Clearwater/Largo Road corridor. Officers targeting this area will be in uniform and on foot or riding police mountain bikes. As a result of this grant, resources will not have to be utilized from the patrol divisions day to day responsibilities of responding to calls for service or self initiated activity.
