Red Bay PD lands grant for equipment
Gov. Bob Riley has awarded $25,000 to boost law enforcement for the Red Bay Police Department.
The grant will enable the police department to purchase upgraded equipment.
"Law enforcement agencies across Alabama are called upon daily to protect and serve those in their communities and often they are required to place their lives in danger," Riley said. "It is essential that we supply them with reliable equipment and transportation enabling them to efficiently perform their jobs."
Riley notified Red Bay Mayor Jeff Reid that the grant had been awarded.
The grant was awarded from funds made available to the state from the U.S. Department of Justice. The Alabama Department of Economic and Community Affairs will administer the grant.
