Police Department grants
The Bridgewater Police Department has been awarded nearly $114,000 in grants to fund three separate training and enforcement initiatives. Of the total, $27,500 will be used to train and certify the department’s officers in emergency medical dispatch; that certification becomes mandatory in July. An $82,000 grant will fund an advanced three-day tactics course for full-time officers in the town Police Department and Bridgewater State University’s campus police. Another $5,000 will allow officers to participate in three statewide traffic enforcement events.
