Funds granted to purchase cameras for law enforcement

From staff reports

WASHINGTON — The Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency has awarded a grant to Mifflin County.

A grant in the amount of $85,838 will be administered to Mifflin County for the purchase of body-worn cameras to outfit local law enforcement, Rep. Fred Keller, R-Selinsgrove, said in a press release Tuesday.

“Nothing is more important than ensuring the safety and security of residents in Pennsylvania’s 12th District,” Keller said. “I am grateful to the PCCD for its support of our local communities and am confident that the funds awarded will be put to good use in protecting the hardworking people who call our district home.”

The PCCD allocates federal funds to a wide variety of justice related programs through its Criminal Justice Advisory Committee. These include programs to improve local law enforcement, victim services, and technology projects.

It was one of two grants awarded within the 12th Congressional District. The other was a separate grant in the amount of $14,800 to Endless Mountain Mission Center in Bradford County for a nonprofit security project.

The 12th Congressional District encompasses all of Mifflin, Juniata, Snyder, Perry, Bradford, Clinton, Lycoming, Northumberland, Potter, Sullivan, Susquehanna, Tioga, Union and Wyoming counties and part of Centre County.
