The Laurie Police Department has received two grants for new equipment. The first, from the state Department of Public Safety, will have an immediate impact on officer safety.
That’s Chief Mark Black. The other grant, for $20,000, will help pay for an automated license plate reader for one of the cruisers. Black says that will take a little while.
The system will automatically scan, save, and run checks on every license plate that passes in front of it.
