The Macedon Police Department actively pursues grant funding when possible from State and Federal agencies to obtain equipment that would not normally be funded on a local level.

In the past five years, the Macedon Police Department has successfully received in excess of $500,000 in sophisticated communications and surveillance equipment from various Federal agencies. The equipment received is confidential in nature, and is shared with member agencies of the Wayne County narcotics Enforcement Team. Funding has been received from the C.E.D.A.P. and C.T.A.C. Federal grant programs, along with State funding for overtime under the Operation Impact Tools initiative. Funding for a 2005 Police Special Use 2005 Chevy Tahoe 4 x 4 was secured from New York State Senator Michael F. Nozzolio.

Our agency utilizes grant funding only for equipment that will be utilized on a frequent basis, and for equipment that will benefit our community and surrounding agencies when called upon.
