Federal Grant Helping Make PD Bullet Proof

The 2008 Local Law Enforcement Block Grant/JAG Program was entitled Project Bullet Proof and that is just what it will be helping the Memphis Police Department become. For the second straight year the municipal department has been awarded a grant through the program administered by the Missouri Department of Public Safety.

The MPD was one of 243 applicants that submitted requests for nearly $2 million in funding. The local protection agency made the cut, as only $1 million in grant applications, or just over half the requests, were approved.

The city will receive $6,725.66 in federal funding. That check will help pay for seven bulletproof vests. The American Body Armor Extreme HPIIA system costs approximately $620 per unit.

The application also was approved for the purchase of two new XTS 1500 Motorola portable radio systems and new Turboflare 360 rotating LED traffic warners for use at accident scenes.

The grant will fund 90-percent of the purchase cost with the city providing a 10-percent grant match.

In talking with other law enforcement agencies, Ive learned that being approved for this grant two years in a row is relatively unheard of, said Police Chief John Myers. Most departments will tell you that receiving funding through this program usually only occurs every two to three years.
