DOVER, Del. (AP) — Delaware's Department of Justice is asking for an additional $3 million so it can focus more on prosecuting sex crimes, defending civil rights and protecting the elderly.

Delaware State News reported that the department also wants to boost its efforts to prevent data breaches, help individuals with immigration issues and to crack down on people who try to defraud the government.

Attorney General Kathy Jennings told budget officials that the money would help fund 17 additional positions in the department for the upcoming fiscal year.

The department got about $38.6 million this year. A little more than half of the requested $3 million would go to funding 17 positions. They would include eight deputy attorneys general, six paralegals and a social worker.
