Kirkland announces $200K grant for needed renovations to Chester Township Police Department building

CHESTER, Sept. 16 – State Rep. Brian Kirkland, D-Delaware, announced today that he had successfully worked with the Department of Community and Economic Development to secure a $200,000 grant to renovate the Chester Township Police Department’s building.

The money will help provide needed renovations to the building, including the creation of a women’s locker room and the implementation of necessary upgrades.

“We rely on our men and women in blue for so much in our community that I wanted to help them get the funding they need to improve the working conditions in their headquarters,” Kirkland said. “This state grant funding will help ensure that the Chester Township Police Department will run more efficiently by making the necessary physical improvements to the police headquarters possible.”
