USDA grant to purchase new cars for CPD

The Chipley Police Department will soon welcome three new law enforcement vehicles, thanks to the USDA Community Facilities Grant Program.

In part, the $92,400 grant, along with approximately $20,000 in insurance reimbursements, will replace vehicles that were damaged by flooding during Hurricane Sally in 2020.

The City has a local match of $30,880 but will only have about $11,000 invested after the insurance funds are paid.

Police Chief Scott Thompson states the funds are a huge help in replacing the agency’s aging fleet.

“It’s a positive thing to be able to buy these cars and help improve our service to the community with minimum impact to the taxpayers,” said Chief Thompson.

The new cars are expected to arrive next year.
