SUBJECT: Dispatch Grant
Earlier this year, the Police Department applied for a grant from the Department of Homeland Security and Emergency Management. The grant has been awarded to us and we request that the council accept and appropriate it for our use.
This grant will give us $30,000.00 in federal funds to purchase Emergency Medical Dispatch ProQA software. This software will greatly enhance Dispatch’s ability to address a wide range of medical emergencies and help ensure proper responses. This software will replace a manual card system that has been in place for many years.
Revenue: $30,000.00 to 156-371-5210
Expenditure: $30,000.00 from 156-371-5210
