The latest addition to the crime fighting abilities of LPD is the Multi-Use Vehicle.
A meeting was held in October 2001 with several community leaders to determine how to use a block grant. With feelings still high after Sept. 11, the group decided on the motor home as the best investment in crime fighting and to address the needs of citizens.
The used 1990, 30 foot mobile home was purchased with a 90% block grant totaling $17,775. The city matched with a 10% grant from the budget of $1,777.
