Hammond gets $600,000 for police station

HAMMOND, La. (AP) - The state will provide the city with $600,000 to buy a former Hancock Bank building in downtown Hammond for conversion into a new headquarters for the Police Department. 

The Advocate reports the project remains on hold while the city pursues other procedural requirements to buy the property. The state must give final approval before the project gets under way. 

The city plans to match the state grant with $200,000 of city funds.
