Police Department Recieves Major Grant

HAMPDEN - A local police department will be receiving a large grant from the Federal Government.

 

The Hampden Police Department will be receiving $125,000.00 over the next 3 years so they can hire a new school resource officer.

 

Currently there is only one in the area, and officials hope the addition will not only keep our kids safer, but allow both officers to spend time in the classroom.

 

3 other departments around the state are also receiving funds.
