ANCHORAGE (AP) -- The Department of Justice has awarded Alaska over $32 million to fight crime.

The money is part of more than $5 billion awarded to states nationwide, as well as the District of Columbia and five U.S. territories.

More than $23 million of the Alaska funds will go toward law enforcement. Nearly $7 million is slated for juvenile justice programs, $2 million for victims' programs, $340,000 for substance abuse programs and $300,000 dollars for community-based programs.

The law enforcement money will be used to hire more police officers, purchase equipment and provide better training.
