City of Bradenton Police Department Intends To Buy Equipment with Justice Department Grant Money

BRADENTON--The City of Bradenton is issuing a public notice of its intentions to use the remainder of two U.S. Department of Justice grants to buy equipment for the police department.

The City was previously awarded two separate Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grants in the amount of $177,272 and $43,081 which was used for job retention and equipment in the police department. A total of $9,642.97 was not used and the police department would like to use these funds to buy 68 turbo flare device kits, a breath-alcohol test kit and a Key Fob camera.

A detailed outline identifying this plan is available for the public at the following locations:

Citizen comments will be accepted during this period until the close of business on February 28. All comments received during the citizen input period will be forwarded with the grant application submittal to the Department of Justice.

City Council will consider approval of the amendment at a meeting starting at 6:00 p.m. Feb. 23 in City Council Chambers, 101 Old Main St.
