Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2023, $21,936)
The Beckley Police Department is asking for funding to upgrade necessary equipment for the department's Special Response Team (SRT). The SRT currently lacks the equipment necessary to address the needs of the community safely and responsibly. The department will use JAG funding to purchase plate carriers/body armour for members for the SRT. This equipment will provide the officers with the safety and security needed to fulfill the duties and responsibilities of responding to high risk and dangerous situations.
