  • Federal program helps OCPD with equipment

    A federal program through the Homeland Security Department is helping the Oldham County Police Department prepare for any potential crisis.

    The program, called the Defense Logistics Agency, allows old or no longer used federal equipment to funnel down to local law enforcement agencies for emergency management.

    So far, OCPD has acquired a wealth of useful equipment from the program, Police Chief Greg Smith said, including an all-terrain vehicle, three Humvees, radios, weapons and cold weather and water gear.
