Chillicothe Police Department receives grant

Chillicothe Missouri Police Department

The Chillicothe Police Department recently received a Missouri Intergovernmental Risk Management Association grant.

The police department reports the grant for almost $10,000 was used for some upgrades within the department, including purchasing body camera upgrades, a surveillance system, an automated external defibrillator, and an in-car camera.

The MIRMA grant was one of several the Chillicothe Police Department applied for and received in 2018.

The department has received nearly $80,000 in grants this year and plans to continue to apply for grants and use them in the “best way possible.”
