Homeland Security funds police radios

From: The Georgia Office of Homeland Security

(Atlanta, Ga.) – The Georgia Office of Homeland Security (OHS) and Georgia Emergency Management Agency (GEMA), on behalf of Governor Sonny Perdue, recently reimbursed the City of Adel Police Department $40,825.00 for radio communications equipment.

“This communications equipment will not only help build our regional response capacity, it also provides a vital resource the City of Adel Police Department’s first responders can use for incidents on a day-to-day basis,” said OHS-GEMA Director Mike Sherberger.

The primary purpose of the federal homeland security funding is to strengthen the state’s overall capability to respond to acts of terrorism. The funding, administered by GEMA, is part of U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Office for Domestic Preparedness (ODP) grant program.
