Our public safety grant consultants work with fire departments, law enforcement agencies, and other organizations from coast to coast. Now and again, we like to give a shout-out to some of these departments when they win grant awards. Their grant efforts paid off, and now those agencies have won crucial funding for their equipment, personnel, and communities.
Here are a few of their stories.
