USDA Grant will be used for in-vehicle cameras and computers

From the Office of Columbia Mayor Pamela Hoots:

The City of Columbia has received notification of approval for a United States Department of Agriculture Community Facilities grant to provide in-vehicle cameras and computers for the Columbia City Police Department.

"We are pleased to be selected for this grant," said Mayor Hoots. "It will be utilized by the local police to continue their commitment to the community."

City officials noted that they had been fortunate during the last couple of years to receive a USDA Facilities grant for a trailer and vehicle that will be used for drug education in the school system, a Kentucky League of Cities grant for the body cameras, a DARE support grant from Walmart, and a couple of grants for their Christmas Program assisting with children.
