FENTON, Mich. — Argentine Township police may be acquiring rifles, defibrillators, body armor and even a boat without having to pay a dime.
Police Chief Daniel Allen has signed the department up with the Michigan Law Enforcement Support program through the Department of Defense. It's mainly an online program, where law enforcement agencies can select items that are no longer used by the military and slated to be destroyed.
