Local police share federal grant

September 5, 2007

Albany -- The Albany and Dougherty County Police Departments will get nearly $70,000 from the federal government to help protect you better.     

The department's must use the Justice Department grant money to buy equipment or pay for training.     

 County Police plan to use their $14,000 share for shoulder microphone communicators for their officers and for a psychological stress evaluator.    

"So every little bit we can get is going to benefit our ability to perform at our highest level," Dougherty County Police Chief Don Cheek.      

Albany Police will use their grant money to buy ten tasers, shields, bicycles, scan lights, and night vision units.
