Derry Police Department eligible for federal money for patrols
“This is a four-year grant from the United States Department of Justice that is administered by Rockingham County,” said Police Chief Ed Garone.
The sole use of the grant money will be to upgrade the department’s in-car video capabilities, according to Garone.
The department intends to upgrade its current system by installing new high definition cameras, high fidelity microphones, and a server system that will store digital media more efficiently.
The high definition cameras and high fidelity microphones will provide improved recordings, resulting in better evidence for the prosecution of crimes, according to Garone. The detailed recording will also help protect police officers from false allegations and reduce the liability for the department, he added.
