The city is applying for funding under the Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant Program for the purchase of equipment for the Police Department.
The goal of the project is to maintain the challenges of emerging technological improvements and their impact on the community.
The requested funding from the 2019 JAG program will buy software to upgrade the Police Department’s computer-aided dispatch system. The upgrade will allow the CAD system to continuously have high availability with connectivity when routine maintenance and/or repairs are conducted.
The improvement will enhance the responsiveness of West Haven’s public safety personnel, including police, fire and 911 dispatch, as well as University of New Haven police.
