ROSCOE — The police department has received two grants thanks to the work of Chief Jamie Evans.
It was awarded $6,834 from the Illinois Law Enforcement Alarm System (ILEAS) for a new rugged laptop computer to be mounted in a patrol car. Chief Jamie Evans applied for the grant in June.

It will be the fifth laptop computer, or “Tough Book,” received through grant money obtained by the police department.
