Rockford Scanner™: RPD Gets More Grant Money To Combat Crime


 The Rockford Police Department was recently awarded a $904,052 Project Safe Neighborhoods grant from the U.S. Department of Justice. The police department plans to buy additional automated license plate readers, install more video cameras at intersections and create a juvenile crime deterrence program with the funds.

RPD will receive a more than $900,000 grant to go towards improving technology, deterring violent crime, and establishing a program to help at-risk youth impacted by domestic violence. We appreciate being selected for the grant and are excited for what that extra capital can do the curb crime in our city.
