$900K grant for Hagerstown police

Hagerstown police have received a $900,000 federal technology grant to build a public safety network in the city.

The grant, the largest the town has received in 10 years, comes from the U.S. Department of Justice's Community Oriented Policing Services program.

Police Chief Arthur Smith says the department will use the money to link computer, radio, in-car, video camera and other systems for top efficiency.

One component will be video cameras. Smith hopes to double the amount of cameras downtown to 60.

Thermal imagers, in-car cameras, a supervisor command vehicle camera and moveable cameras will also be purchased.
