(MINEOLA, N.Y.) - On Monday, Feb. 28, the Nassau County Legislature unanimously approved the allocation of $455,070 in funding received through the New York State Office of Homeland Security’s State Law Enforcement Terrorism Program (SLETPP) - which provides law enforcement agencies with resources to purchase and/or supplement their capabilities in detecting, disrupting and preventing acts of terrorism.

Of those dollars, $133,452 will be set aside for Nassau County Police training and exercises; $31,548 will be utilized for fringe benefits, and $290,070 will be dedicated toward equipment purchases.

“At this critical moment in the history of the world, protecting Nassau County residents from all domestic and foreign threats to their safety and security must be our top priority,” Nassau County Legislator Joshua Lafazan (D - Woodbury) said. “Every dollar that we can dedicate to equipping and training our law enforcement professionals to prevent terrorism is money well spent, and I thank New York State for delivering this crucial funding in support of Nassau County’s outstanding first responders.”
