Adel Police Department gets grant

October 1, 2003

Adel - A homeland security grant means more patrolling and safer streets for one South Georgia town.

The federal government has given the Adel Police Department $14,000.00. The money will be used for police overtime pay and fringe benefits.

"In any police department there's limited funding for overtime pay, and this money will allow us to put additional manpower on the street and better protect the citizens of Adel," said Police Chief Scott Gore.

The grant is part of the Community Oriented Policing Services, or COPS Homeland Security Overtime Program.
