APD Grant Request

The Amarillo Police Department and the Potter County Sheriff's Office will ask for more than 800-thousand dollars from the Bureau of Justice Administration.

The funds are part of the 2009 American Recovery and Reinvestment Act signed by the president in February.

If the grant is awarded, Amarillo and Potter County will split the money.

Among other things, APD would use the money to buy computerized citation equipment, pay overtime for patrol operations...and provide recording systems for homicide investigations.
