The Vermont Sheriffs’ Association is giving $10,000 to the Waterbury Police Department to replace equipment damaged or destroyed by Tropical Storm Irene.
The money will help purchase computers, computer equipment, a storage locker for short-term evidence, and a safe for the storage of evidence over a longer period.
Washington County Sheriff W. Samuel Hill contacted Waterbury Police Chief Joby Feccia with news of the assistance.
The association is also providing recovery assistance to police in Wilmington.
Equipment was hardly the only casualty of Irene for Waterbury police. The department also lost the use of its headquarters at 51 S. Main St. and has since been renting a building nearby with insurance money.MORE IN Central VermontDispatch plan comes into sharper focus Full Story
