Kincaid Police have received a grant from Ameren Illinois to purchase equipment for the Police Department. The police department received a $5,000 grant from Ameren to purchase communications equipment. The Starcom radios along with a new laptop for a patrol vehicle will benefit everyone as it allows for better communication between the Kincaid Police Department and Fire Department.
Kincaid Police Chief DJ Mathon says that the new equipment will be a huge asset to the department and their dedication to the safety of the community. He thanked Ameren Illinois saying that his officers will be able to perform their job even better.
The grant funds were made available through the Ameren Cares program, a program that connects Ameren Illinois with the communities it serves through charitable giving and volunteering.
