WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - At its meeting on Tuesday, June 6, the Wilmington Housing Authority Board of Commissioners approved contracts with the Wilmington Police Department and local nonprofit Leading Into New Communities.

A police services contract for up to $158,000 will support increased patrols, statistical reporting and analysis of WHA properties. That price tag will pay for a 12-month contract with the city.

The authority also approved an up to $100,000 contract with LINC, a local nonprofit that works to help support people to transition more easily out of prison and reduce recidivism rates. The organization works with teens and young adults as well to avoid involvement with the juvenile justice system.
