Sixteen federal grants worth $11.2 million will help to keep or create 45 law enforcement jobs across Michigan.

Democratic U.S. Sens. Carl Levin and Debbie Stabenow announced the grants Friday, which come from the Justice Department's Community Oriented Policing Services Hiring Program.

Levin says in a statement that the grants will help "fill in the gaps" created by tight municipal budgets.

The largest of the grants, $5.8 million, goes to the Michigan State Police.

Local departments receiving grants include East Lansing, Burton, Adrian, Sandusky, River Rouge, Tawas, Niles, Wyoming and the Little River Band of Ottawa Indians.
