MONTGOMERY— Gov. Robert Bentley has awarded an $8,461 grant to help the Washington County town of Millry purchase a variety of new police equipment.
The town will purchase new laptop computers, printers, radars, radios and other equipment to help the Police Department’s three officers perform their duties efficiently and effectively.
“Our law enforcement officers deserve our gratitude for working hard each day to protect and serve our communities,” Bentley said. “I am pleased to help the Town of Millry to replace old, worn equipment with new models to help officers perform their duties even more effectively.”
The Alabama Department of Economic and Community Affairs is administering the grant from funds made available by the U.S. Justice Department.
“This grant is a continuation of ADECA’s strong partnership with the Millry Police Department and other law enforcement agencies across Alabama,” ADECA Director Jim Byard Jr. said. "ADECA is proud to partner with law enforcement officers who make our communities stronger by keeping our residents safe.”
ADECA administers an array of programs supporting law enforcement and traffic safety, economic development, energy conservation, water resource management and recreation development.
Bentley notified Mayor Clint Havard that the grant had been approved.
