The Douglas Police Department has recently purchased, two new Ford F-150 Police Responder Trucks. These trucks were made possible through an equipment grant awarded for the total amount of $136,000.00. The two 4x4 vehicles with police equipment, two P25 mobile radios, two mobile data computers with docking stations, and two night vision spotlights (FLIR); were utilized for an overall amount of $108,000.
The equipment grant was a part of the 2018 fiscal year Operations Stonegarden program; which, included overtime for a grand total of $292,000.00. According to the Arizona Department of Homeland Security, “The OPSG program supports enhanced cooperation and coordination among Customs and Border Protection (CBP), United States Border Patrol (USBP), and local, tribal, territorial, state, and Federal law enforcement agencies. The OPSG Program funds investments in joint efforts to secure the United States’ borders along routes of ingress from international borders to include travel corridors in states bordering Mexico and Canada, as well as states and territories with International water borders.” The F-150s will only be used by Douglas Police officers working Stonegarden deployment. In using these trucks, the Douglas Police fleet vehicles will sustain less wear and tear.
