The agencies applying for this grant are the Minot Police Department, located in the City of Minot, ND, and the Ward County Sheriff’s Department, located in Ward County, ND.

The proposal for the Ward County Sheriff’s Department includes level 2 air purifier respirators (APR). These APRs allow for rapid deployment of deputies in critical incidents where hazardous materials may be present. They will allow deputies to respond to areas within the community and provide protection, security, and life-saving measures if necessary. The proposal for the Minot Police Department is radar speed display signs. The purpose of this proposal is to enhance traffic safety through means of static display of motorist's speed. These signs provide a deterrent, thus enhancing community safety. Studies have shown that increased speed increases the chance of bodily injury or death in traffic crashes. Signs will be placed in areas of community concern.
