City of Jamestown Awarded Grant to Enhance Law Enforcement Technology

The New York State Division of Criminal Justice Services (NYS DCJS) has awarded the City of Jamestown a Law Enforcement Technology (LETECH) Grant totaling $285,400. This grant will significantly enhance the technological capacities of the Jamestown Police Department, enabling them to better prevent, investigate, and solve crimes, as well as conduct search and rescue operations and investigations. The grant will fund the purchase of the following equipment and upgrades:

  • 44 surveillance cameras
  • three license plate readers
  • three unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs)
  • software updates and installations for 51 computers
  • three printers for patrol cars

Jamestown Mayor Kim Ecklund says, "This grant represents a major step forward for our police department. With this additional technology, we will be more equipped to protect our community, solve crimes more efficiently, and enhance our overall public safety."

The ability to acquire additional surveillance cameras and license plate readers will provide critical real-time data and evidence, helping to expedite investigations and improve response times. The UAVs will offer invaluable support for search and rescue missions, large event monitoring, and crime scene assessments. Additionally, the software updates and installations will enhance the efficiency and capability of the Jamestown Police Department's existing computer systems.
