KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) -- The federal government has awarded more than $500,000 to law enforcement agencies in five Kansas communities for new equipment, staff and services.

The largest grant -- about $363,000 -- goes to Sedgwick County prosecutors, the sheriff's department and the Wichita Police Department. The money will go toward investigative equipment, computers and software for court hearings and other purposes.

Police in Kansas City, Kan., are getting $93,000 for a unit that takes reports on non-emergency offenses such as shoplifting and minor property damage.

The other grants are $47,000 for video equipment in Douglas County; $32,000 for technology upgrades in Leavenworth County; and more than $28,000 for new equipment for Hutchinson police and the Reno County Sheriff's Office.
