Assemblywoman Jean-Pierre Secures Grant for Amityville Police Department

New York State Assemblywoman Kimberly Jean-Pierre (D-Wheatley Heights) recently secured a capital grant for the Amityville Village Police Department in the amount of $133K. The grant has allowed the Department to purchase three new state-of-the-art police vehicles.

Assemblywoman Jean-Pierre joined Amityville Village Mayor Dennis Siry, members of the Amityville Village Board of Trustees and members of the Amityville Police Department for an official check presentation at Amityville Village Hall.

“Our law enforcement officers work diligently to serve and protect our communities, and these new vehicles will enhance the ability of our Amityville police officers to continue that great work,” said Jean-Pierre.

“I wish to extend a big thank you to Assemblywoman Jean-Pierre for her hard work and dedication to law enforcement with the procurement of this grant for the purchase of three fully-equipped 2019 Ford Interceptor police cars,” said Amityville Village Police Chief Glenn C. Slack. “These police cares will save the Village of Amityville tax dollars that can go to other much-needed improvements to the Village.”
