Police chief says funds well spent

April 19, 2013

Thirty thousand dollars spent one year ago is paying off today for the Seneca Police Department, according to its chief. John Covington said the $30 thousand dollars approved by city council was enough to finish equipping all patrol vehicles with up-to-date car video/audio recording equipment and replace out-dated units. It also allowed the police to buy what Covington called state-of-the-art undercover equipment that has allowed his officers to make iron-clad cases for prosecution. Covington said, ‚ÄúThis equipment pays for itself on a daily basis and has greatly contributed to increased guilty pleas and verdicts on cases ranging from DUI to the sale of illicit drugs.”
