DERRY, N.H. — A U.S. Department of Justice grant will help the police department fight cybercrimes and illegal drug activity, according to Police Chief Ed Garone.
The Town Council authorized the acceptance of the $20,425 Justice Assistance Grant. Rockingham County will receive a 5 percent administration fee for the service, with Derry receiving a net total of $19,451.
"The grant is one the police department has received for several years in various amounts," said Garone. The funds are available to buy law enforcement equipment or systems the department cannot fit into its budget.
