FEBRUARY 3, 2006 -- A local police department is getting some help to patrol it's increasingly populated streets.
The Leland Police Department is showing off their new equipment, all thanks to a traffic safety grant from the governor's office.
More than $160,000 has helped fund two new police cruisers, a motorcycle, as well as some radar guns.
They say the new equipment will help the police department conduct a more efficient operation.
The funds are also helping to pay the salary of two of the officers who will use the equipment.
