EPD Receives $950,000 in Congressionally Directed Spending
The City of Elkins would like to thank Senator Joe Manchin III and Senator Shelley Moore Capito for their efforts in securing $950,000 in Congressionally Directed Spending for the Elkins Police Department. This investment will allow E.P.D. to make significant technology upgrades that will greatly assist us in protecting the lives and property of the citizens of Elkins and our visitors. The most notable portion of this project will be the implementation of a street camera system utilizing license plate reader technology. Systems such as these have proven to be very effective at assisting law enforcement agencies in preventing, detecting, and investigating criminal activity. This system will also provide valuable assistance in non-criminal tasks such as traffic crash investigation, missing persons, and monitoring roadway conditions during inclement weather.
The Elkins Police Department is committed to providing the safest atmosphere possible for our residents, businesses, and guests. We are extremely thankful to receive this funding and look forward to implementing this project in the near future.
