PHOENIX (AP) -- The state plans to provide two counties with partial funding for sheriff's deputies to work on Arizona's new border strike force and those counties and two others would also get money to pay for costs stemming from border-related crime.

A Department of Public Safety plan endorsed by a legislative oversight committee Wednesday will provide Cochise County with $375,000 for five deputies and Pima County with $225,000 for three deputies.

DPS Director Frank Milstead told the committee in a Sept. 14 letter that Santa Cruz and Yuma counties aren't participating because they cannot provide the require 25 percent match.

The state also plans to provide $125,000 grants to each of the four border counties for prosecution and jail expenses stemming from drug trafficking, human smuggling, illegal immigration and other border-related crimes.
