PCCD Technology Grant
On September 1, 2022, The Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency (PCCD) began accepting applications for funding under the Local Law Enforcement (LLE) Support Grant Program. The LLE Support Grant Program was established within PCCD as part of Act 54 of 2022. The primary purpose of the grant program is to provide funding to local law enforcement agencies to implement information technology improvements, purchase or upgrade equipment, cover non-traditional law enforcement personnel costs, support retention and recruitment efforts, and provide necessary training and related expenses.
On October 13, 2022, Westtown-East Goshen Regional Police Department submitted an application for funding. We were notified on December 14, 2022 that we were awarded $821,650 in grant dollars to be spent over the next two years. This will enable the Police Department to fund the development of new technology, refine existing technology and even hire an additional member of the Admin Unit which in turn will enable us to serve our communities to the best of our ability.
