| The City of Pittsburgh Bureau of Police and Allegheny County Witness Protection Program|
U.S. Senate Appropriations Committee had approved major funds for Attorney General Mike Fisher's statewide witness protection program in 2002.
The Committee approved $450,000 for the State of Pennsylvania Witness Protection Program, which is designed to enable law enforcement throughout the State to relocate witnesses and, when necessary, members of their immediate family from areas where they are subject to threats or harm because of their witness status. The program was modeled after the program devised by the Pittsburgh Police Department. The Pittsburgh program has moved more than 150 witnesses and 250 family members since its inception eight years ago. The statewide program will be for relocations to another county or state. Some of these funds were used to support the "Prevent Another Crime before it Happens" billboard campaign here in Pittsburgh.
