Rockingham County's found more than $100,000 to get upgraded emergency radio equipment for town police.
This would give each of the six towns $19,000 worth of radio equipment. Timberville Police Chief Richard Sullivan said this would take care of half the total cost for the radios.
Originally the town council had to come up with $43,000; now they are looking at having to come up with around $24,000. Sullivan says this will be a relief to many towns' wallets.
"I'm sure all of the towns are in the same position coming up with this kind of money it's gonna be hard and so it's a relief today," said Richard Sullivan, Timberville Police Chief.
The funding came from a Homeland Security Grant.
