Governor awards grant to Demopolis for police equipment

MONTGOMERY– Gov. Robert Bentley has awarded a $3,779 grant to help the city of Demopolis obtain new police equipment.

The funds will purchase surveillance equipment used in undercover and narcotics-related investigations.

“Our police officers put their lives on the line daily to protect and serve their communities,” Bentley said. “I am pleased to help the Demopolis Police Department obtain equipment that helps them to be even more effective in their investigations.”

The Alabama Department of Economic and Community Affairs is administering the grant from funds made available by the U.S. Department of Justice. ADECA administers a wide range of programs that support law enforcement, traffic safety, energy conservation, water resource management, economic development and recreation.

“Through our grant programs, ADECA partners with law enforcement agencies around the state to help them get needed equipment,” ADECA Director Jim Byard Jr. said. “ADECA is pleased to assist the city of Demopolis in meeting this equipment need.”

Bentley notified Mayor Michael Grayson that the grant had been approved.
