Rockland County Receives Significant Homeland Security Grants to Bolster Emergency and Counter-Terrorism Efforts

Rockland County, in a significant development for local emergency services, has been awarded two grants from the New York State Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Services. The announcement was jointly made by County Sheriff Louis Falco and County Executive Ed Day.
