BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota's Land Board has awarded about $5 million in state grants to law enforcement agencies in North Dakota's oil-production region.

Officials say the money will support sheriffs, police departments, prosecutors and regional law enforcement task forces. The state funding will also support domestic violence assistance programs, family crisis assistance and child advocacy.

The Land Board will award a total of $240 million in impact grants through 2015 to counties experiencing rapid growth from the state's oil boom.

The Land Board is headed by Gov. Jack Dalrymple.
