Governor announces over $13,000 in funding for the Colona Police Department
Grant to be used to improve communications system

CHICAGO - Governor Rod R. Blagojevich today announced $13,822 in funding for the Colona Police Department for construction and installation of public safety communications equipment.  This is the final installment on a $28,000 grant for the project.
 
“I’m pleased to be able to provide the Colona Police Department with these funds to help meet the community’s public safety needs,” said Governor Blagojevich.  “With the modern technology now available there is no reason for our police officers not to have reliable communications equipment that will ensure their safety and the safety of the residents of Colona.”
 
The Colona Police Department in the past has relied on the Henry County Sheriff’s Department communications system. 
 
“This new equipment will make it easier for the officers and dispatchers of the Colona Police Department to communicate with each other. It will also help in the coordination of their efforts with the County Sheriff’s Office and the Illinois State Police providing better service and a safer and more secure community,” said State Senator Denny Jacobs who sponsored the project.
