Police and Fire Awarded Grant

The City of Carrollton’s public safety departments were awarded $38,464 by the Department of Justice’s Bureau of Justice Assistance to help combat the spread of the coronavirus.

“This grant enhances our ability to protect the citizens while reducing the risk of virus spread to our citizens and public safety personnel,” said Fire Chief Jimmy Bearden.

The city’s police and fire departments are using the grant money to purchase personal protective equipment.

“We are very thankful for this grant from the Department of Justice and the partnership we have with the Carrollton Fire Department,” said Carrollton Police Chief Joel Richards.

Emergency Supplemental Funding Program dollars can be used to pay for equipment (including law enforcement and medical personal protective equipment), supplies like protective coveralls, gloves, masks, gowns and sanitizer and addressing the medical needs of inmates in state, local, and tribal prisons, jails and detention centers.
