Sen.-elect Rothman Announces Support Grants for Area Police

HARRISBURG – The Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency (PCCD) approved grants today to help local law enforcement agencies better protect their communities, according to Sen.-elect Greg Rothman (R-34).

“Police officers risk their lives every day and they deserve our support and the tools to do their jobs safely,” Rothman said. “I’m pleased to see these tax dollars returning to our communities to help the men and women in uniform protect and serve.”

The following municipalities are receiving Local Law Enforcement Support Grants:

  • Carlisle Borough ($1.8 million) to upgrade its radios and record management system.
  • East Pennsboro Township ($68,750) for vehicle camera systems and retention and recruitment efforts.
  • North Middleton Township ($41,441) for an integrated body-worn and in-car camera system.

The Local Law Enforcement Support Grant Program was created by lawmakers in the state budget approved in July. Senator-elect Rothman voted to fund the program while serving as state representative.

Funding can be used for an array of projects or purchases to enhance public safety, such as communications system upgrades, body-worn or in-car cameras, recruitment and retention, training, surveillance cameras, automated license plate readers and more.
