Merski: Nearly $100,000 secured for Wesleyville Borough police vehicles, in-car computers

ERIE, April 29 – New funding of $96,200 from the Department of Community and Economic Development will help fund new police vehicles and in-car computers for the Wesleyville Borough Police Department, state Rep. Bob Merski, D-Erie, announced today. 

Merski said the funding will help ensure officers have state-of-the-art technology to protect and assist them.

“Our police deserve state-of-the-art vehicles equipped with technology that can make their jobs safer, easier and more effective,” Merski said. “In addition to the latest safety technology, having vehicles equipped with in-car computers will allow officers to complete tasks like filling out paperwork, recording witness statements and uploading crime scene photos right on site, which will speed their work and strengthen investigations.

“I’m grateful to DCED for the funding, because Wesleyville’s finest deserve the finest resources we can provide.”
