The department will purchase the most technologically advanced police equipment allowing for improvements that will provide for the protection of persons and property. The equipment will also improve efficiency and allow officers to spend more time on the streets and less time in the office. Additionally, with the most technically advanced equipment, personnel will be better equipped to investigate, pursue, and convict those persons who are committing crimes in the community.
