U.S. Rep. Jack Kingston (R-Savannah) recently announced that the city of Hinesville and Liberty County have received a Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistant Grant from the U.S. Department of Justice.
The city and county will share the $22,529 grant.
“I would like to congratulate city and county officials for all their hard work in getting this DOJ grant,” Kingston said. “The funds will go towards the purchase of new equipment that will keep police officers secure as they protect the residents of Hinesville and Liberty County.”
In turn, local officials praised the lawmaker.
“The Liberty County Sheriff’s Department would like to thank Congressman Kingston for helping to ensure that our officers are as safe as possible while serving the citizens of Liberty County,” Liberty County Sheriff’s Department Chief Deputy Keith Moran said.
“We appreciate Congressman Kingston’s help in getting Hinesville this much needed money which will go towards equipping eight of our police cruisers with radios and radars,” Hinesville Police Department Chief George Stagmeier said.
The city will use its share of money to buy equipment for eight police cruisers. The Community Development Department will share funds to work overtime to administer the grants and prepare reports. The county will use its money to buy bullet-proof vests with covers.
