GLASGOW — The city of Glasgow has received two grants that will fund weapon and radio equipment purchases for the Glasgow Police Department. 

One grant, which totals to $18,760, will be used to buy 40 new back-up duty weapons. The grant funds are coming from the Law Enforcement Protection Grant Program through the Kentucky Office of Homeland Security, which is funded solely by the sale of confiscated weapons turned in by law enforcement agencies, according to a Glasgow Police Department press release. 

A $24,000 Kentucky Department of Homeland Security grant will be used to fund the purchase of a hand-held P25 digital critical incident radios, the press release stated. 

The police department also received a $28,000 grant to fund overtime for police officers who have been assigned to seek out impaired drivers, those not wearing seat belts and any other behavior that may result in injury or death on the roadways. The grant will fund such efforts through September 2013, the press release stated.
