Rep. Robert L. Freeman December 9, 2021 | 9:40 AM
HARRISBURG, Dec. 9 – State Rep. Robert Freeman today announced that a $24,440 grant was awarded to the Wilson Borough Police Department by the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency.
“I’m glad that the Wilson Borough Police Department was able to secure this grant for the purchase of essential safety equipment,” said Freeman, D-Northampton. “My office is always available to assist municipalities in applying for grants like these to secure needed equipment and training.”
The money will support the purchase of equipment which will be used by officers of the Wilson Borough Police Department when responding to in-progress violent crime, including crimes committed by local gangs. This project aims to increase officer and civilian safety during violent in-progress crimes, particularly those involving firearms. Funds will support the purchase of ballistic helmets and shields.
Freeman said the funds were awarded through the Federal Byrne Justice Assistance Grant Program.
The Wilson Police grant is part of more than $29 million that was awarded to several organizations across the state.
