FREMONT, Calif. — The Fremont Police Department will soon use a state grant to put in a new recording system for its dispatch center and new police cruiser computers, the police chief said Thursday.
Chief Tim Wiersma said the department was awarded a $9,355 grant through the Justice Assistance Grant program for the technology upgrade.
Wiersma said the department had applied for about twice the amount of the grant award through the program — with Fremont getting the fourth highest amount of funds of any law enforcement agency in the state.
