The Portage Redevelopment Commission is buying new gear for the Police Department.
Police Chief Michael Candiano outlined his funding request, including two more automatic electric defibrillators, at $700 each. “This will get us to where just about every officer in the patrol division has them,” he said.
Six sets of stop sticks cost just over $3,000. “It’s a pretty important tool to have,” Candiano said. “Pursuits are everywhere. A lot of times they’re coming through town and we’re not even initiating them.”
The stop sticks are used to puncture tires of cars being pursued by police.
Two ATVs, purchased in 2012, will be replaced. “They’re starting to become money pits just in terms of maintenance and because of their age,” Candiano said. The older ATVs and UTV will be traded in. The $15,000 total trade-in value brings the cost to $7,108.
