Assemblymember Lavine Funds the Police

Glen Cove, New York – Assemblymember Charles Lavine (D-Glen Cove) recently presented the Glen Cove Police Department with a $250,000 capital grant he secured. The funding paid for 5 brand new, state of the art, Ford Police Interceptors. The funds could not have come at a better time for the Department which was in great need of upgrading its fleet to ensure the safety of the residents of the city.

“In the aftermath of the tragic shooting in Buffalo, President Biden reminds us of the importance of providing financial support to our law enforcement agencies, noting that the answer is not to abandon the streets, it’s not to choose between safety and equal justice, and we should agree it’s not to defund the police, it’s to fund the police. With this grant, I am doing just that.”
