The Edwardsville Police Department has been awarded a grant for law enforcement equipment, Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt announced.
The department will receive $62,530 to purchase technology that will replace old equipment with updated electronic immobilization systems.
“Providing the best public safety services requires dedicated local officials and access to modern technology,” Schmidt said. “This grant will help advance local priorities for improving public safety.”
The grant is part of the Federal Edward J. Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant Program and was awarded by the Kansas Criminal Justice Coordinating Council. Schmidt serves as the chair of the council.
