Governor Hochul Announces $127 Million Investment in Law Enforcement Technology and Equipment, Including Over $1.96 Million for Rockland County

Governor Kathy Hochul has announced a $127 million allocation to police departments and sheriffs’ offices outside of New York City. The funding, part of the FY 2025 Enacted Budget, is aimed at enhancing public safety through new technology and equipment. This initiative will benefit 378 law enforcement agencies that responded to the state’s funding application last fall.

“Public safety is my top priority, and we are continuing to make record investments in law enforcement so they have the resources they need to protect our communities,” said Governor Hochul. “By investing in the latest technology and equipment, we’re responding to the requests of law enforcement agencies as they look to safeguard the future of our state.”

The grants will enable police departments and sheriffs’ offices to purchase advanced technology and equipment, including license plate readers, mobile and fixed camera systems, computer-aided dispatch systems, software, unmanned aerial vehicles, gunshot detection devices, and smart equipment for patrol vehicles and officers.

The State Division of Criminal Justice Services (DCJS) has notified all agencies of their grant awards and will issue award letters this month. The funding will primarily support license plate readers (22 percent), body-worn and patrol vehicle equipment (20 percent), and public safety camera systems (17 percent).

The FY25 Enacted Budget continues to prioritize public safety and criminal justice funding, supporting Governor Hochul’s comprehensive approach to addressing gun violence and includes additional funding to combat retail theft, domestic violence, and support community-based programs for victims and survivors of crime.

DCJS plays a critical role in the state’s criminal justice system by training law enforcement professionals, overseeing accreditation programs, ensuring the proper operation of Breathalyzer and speed enforcement equipment, managing grant funding, analyzing crime data, and coordinating youth justice policies.
