Huntington Police Department receives grant for armored vehicle
The $266,000 grant was awarded by the West Virginia Department of Military Affairs and Public Safety. The total cost of the vehicle is $279,130, leaving the Police Department to cover the remaining $13,130. Huntington City Council will vote on a resolution authorizing acceptance of the grant during its meeting at 7:30 p.m. Monday, Feb. 24.
“This is another example of the Huntington Police Department identifying outside funding to help achieve its mission of keeping our citizens safe without placing an obligation on our general fund,” Mayor Steve Williams said.
Since 2009, the Police Department has supplemented its operation with nearly $6.5 million from grant proceeds and other sources of outside funding. That funding has helped purchase 46 vehicles, service weapons, laptop computers, digital radios, bulletproof vests and surveillance cameras.
