The US Justice Department has awarded two Massachusetts district attorney’s offices grants totaling nearly $1 million to fund programs aimed at capturing and prosecuting sexual predators of children. Over the next two years, the Worcester district attorney’s office will receive $500,000, while the Northwestern district attorney’s office will receive $493,000. The Massachusetts district attorneys plan to use the money to update forensic equipment, enhance training, and pay for overtime for officers investigating crimes against children.
