“In combination of the three grants, we have applied to receive $29,000 in over-time that would be earmarked to bring in officers to patrol the streets specifically for traffic enforcement,” says Sergeant Chubick,” Out of that we also applied for $9,000 in equipment.”

The department should receive notification of the decision on the grants by mid-July and funds will be available October 1st.
