The Cleveland Police Department has received two grants that will allow the department to place mobile computers in every patrol car and make traffic safety enhancements.

Police Chief Jeff Shoemaker announced the grants during a recent Cleveland City Council meeting. The Governor’s Office of Highway Safety awarded CPD a $19,000 technology grant for the mobile computers. He calls it “a great improvement from where we were a year ago today, really good enhancement for our patrol vehicles.”

In addition, Shoemaker said AAA of Georgia awarded the department its Auto Club Group Grant. He says they’ll use the $2,500 grant to purchase safety equipment for Cleveland police officers and their vehicles.
