YORK – Sen. Kristin Phillips-Hill (R-York) announced that a $775,000 grant was awarded for the York County Regional Police Department’s expansion on Oak Street.
“Our police officers are so dedicated to keeping our communities safe and defending victims by bringing criminals to justice when necessary,” Phillips-Hill said. “However, the current limitations of the York County Regional Police Department’s building make it more challenging for the officers to do their important work. Because of the grant, the building will be more reflective of the department’s needs, enabling greater efficiency – and ultimately greater service to the community.”
The funding will be used to expand the police department building by creating an addition to enhance and enlarge our men’s and women’s locker rooms. This includes more rooms for roll call to have increased technology for virtual communications between police department buildings with both intra-department and inter-department police personnel.
This project also includes inside storage of several police vehicles and additional storage due to increased demands and seizure of evidence. The additional storage area would create adequate space for evidence storage and long-term evidence storage.
The Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program (RACP) is a Commonwealth grant program administered by the Office of the Budget for the acquisition and construction of regional economic, cultural, civic, recreational, and historical improvement projects. RACP projects are state-funded and cannot obtain primary funding under other state programs.
