Editor’s Note: It’s sad they keep pretending our police are “local” at this point… Follow the money. It’s all federal law enforcement now.
The NYPD will be getting a boost of federal funds to help combat terrorism, officials announced Wednesday.
The city will receive $180 million as part of a nationwide grant program from the Department of Homeland Security that aims to better prepare local and state governments and law enforcement agencies in the event of a terrorist attack.
The NYPD will be getting the lion’s share of the cash, which will go toward surveillance and terror fighting equipment like cameras, bomb sniffing dogs and communications infrastructure, according to DHS secretary Jeh Johnson.
Money will also be used to pay for things like overtime costs for police officers and anti-terror teams at airports, bus and train stations.
