Gov. Kay Ivey has awarded a $15,904 grant to help the Odenville Police Department better serve the public and enforce laws.
The grant will enable the police department to purchase a patrol vehicle. The 2019 Chevrolet Tahoe will come fully equipped for patrol needs.
“Every day throughout Alabama dedicated law enforcement agents put their lives on the line to protect us and enforce state and local laws,” Ivey said. “I hope this grant will help express our gratitude to those who wear the badge and have vowed to protect and serve.”
The Alabama Department of Economic and Community Affairs is administering the grant from funds made available by the U.S. Justice Department.
ADECA has awarded numerous grants to law enforcement agencies across Alabama to purchase equipment that those local agencies deem essential to their needs, including the nearby Moody Police Department.
“ADECA is proud to be a partner with Gov. Ivey in helping police officers do their jobs more efficiently, effectively and safely,” ADECA Director Kenneth Boswell said.
ADECA administers an array of programs supporting law enforcement and traffic safety, economic development, energy conservation, water resource management and recreation development.
