OWENSBORO, Ky. — The Owensboro Police Department is seeking more than $8 million in grants from the Department of Homeland Security in an effort to enhance technology for the anticipated converged 911 center and other departmental improvements.

Commissioners today will look to authorize the application for grants that, if awarded, would provide additional equipment to OPD's Bomb Squad and complete the installation of mobile data terminals in police cruisers.
