The City of White Rock is to receive grants totalling $333,885, with a chunk of the funds ($216,993) collected from traffic fines.

The provincial government announced the Strategic Community Investment Fund grants Tuesday.

The portion from the traffic fines – distributed through the Traffic Fine Revenue Sharing program – is to help cities that directly pay for police enforcement costs, by providing additional funding for local police services and crime prevention programs.

Surrey-White Rock MLA Gordon Hogg said the funds "give White Rock the flexibility to re-invest money in projects that it has identified as priorities within the community."
