Legislature Accepts Homeland Security Grants

Tuesday, January 20, 2015

The Legislature, by unanimous vote of (Legislators Dan Klein, Leslyn McBean-Clairborne, and Kathy Luz Herrera were excused) authorized acceptance of more than $350,000 in New York State Homeland Security grants on behalf of the Department of Emergency Response. 

The funding will be used to complete previously and partially funded projects, including enhancement to the computer aided dispatch system with a “text-to-voice” incident response paging module; update of the system’s “Pictometry” mapping integration system; procurement of a web-based Emergency Operations Center management software system; and purchase by the Sheriff’s Office of a scenario-based virtual training simulator system for law enforcement and emergency management agencies.
