Local Police Agencies Get Funding for Training, Equipment

Posted: 12/06/2017 10:07:00 -05:00 Updated:

DOVER, Del. (AP)- Just in time for Christmas, a state panel has dipped into its bag of money to hand out hundreds of thousands of dollars to local police departments in Delaware.

Among the goodies distributed Tuesday was $103,500 to New Castle County police to buy 250 ballistic helmets with face shields for patrol officers.

The Special Law Enforcement Assistance Fund oversight group also approved $12,804 for Delaware State Police to buy 100 riot helmets.

Overall, the SLEAF panel, whose funds come from property forfeited in criminal cases, approved almost $400,000 in grants to local police departments.

The funds will be used for training programs and a host of equipment purchases, including rifles, camera systems, stun guns, and a machine that can bypass user-based encryptions to gain access to computers and cell phones.

    Locals in Salisbury React To Trump's National Emergency

    President Donald Trump declared a national emergency Friday after congress refused to completely fund his wall at the  U.S.-Mexico border. Congress approved a spending deal to avoid a shutdown, which did not include the $5.7 billion President Trump requested in border wall funding.

    Salisbury University Political Science Chair Adam Hoffman says the move may result in severe push back from democratic congressional leaders, and may even result in legal action.
