Williams announces safety grant benefitting South Coatesville

HARRISBURG, Dec. 15 – Rep. Dan Williams, D-Chester, announced today that South Coatesville Borough has been approved for a $30,000 grant to upgrade the police department’s record management systems.

Williams praised the grant award, saying in part that the funds will increase public security and safety.

Record management systems are used by the police to store law enforcement records and files, thereby helping to reduce the chances of human error amid policing efforts.

The grant was approved on Wednesday by The Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency as part of a new Local Law Enforcement Support Grant Program. The program was signed into law in July by Gov. Tom Wolf.
