Governor awards grants to equip law enforcement in Butler, Crenshaw and Lowndes counties
MONTGOMERY— Gov. Kay Ivey has awarded grants totaling $95,272 to provide equipment to four law enforcement agencies in south central Alabama.

The grants will help the Greenville Police Department and the sheriffs’ offices of Butler, Crenshaw and Lowndes counties purchase a variety of equipment that includes computers and items to increase officer safety.

“The men and women of our law enforcement agencies put their lives on the line each and every day to serve and protect the residents of their jurisdictions, and it is imperative that we provide them the necessary equipment to perform their duties safely and effectively,” Ivey said. “I am pleased to award these grants to help the officers of these agencies in their daily work.”

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

Ivey awarded the following grants:
  • $23,847 to the city of Greenville for bullet proof vests for the police department
  • $24,000 to the Butler County Commission for the Sheriff’s Office to purchase new laptops
  • $23,425 to the Crenshaw County Commission to upgrade in-car computer equipment for the Sheriff’s Office
  • $24,000 to the Lowndes County Commission for the Sheriff’s Office to purchase tablet-style computer equipment
