Police Get Communications Vehicle
The Hershey (PA) Police Department has acquired a mobile-communications vehicle that can be used for conducting security operations.
The vehicle, which will also be available for use by other local law-enforcement agencies, is equipped with cell phones, Direct TV, a mapping system, and Internet-enabled SmartBoard Screen. The department used multiple grants to pay the $400,000 cost of purchasing the vehicle.
The unit’s technology enables it to serve during emergency operations, such as when major storms strike the area.
