HPD receives grant to fund additional cop positions

The Henderson Police Department is pleased to announce the successful receipt of the Cops Hiring Recovery Program Grant.

Congressman Bob Etheridge called Chief K.L. Sidwell today to congratulate the department on its award.

The grant will fund three officer positions for a three-year period. The funds awarded total $369,306. These officers’ positions will go towards additional strategic planning to suppress criminal activity within Henderson.

Etheridge was pleased that Henderson was one of only five jurisdictions to receive three positions. The other jurisdictions involved only received one each.
