GTPD receives grant to assist fight against COVID-19

This new tool will protect personnel from contracting or spreading the Coronavirus that could drastically hinder police protection and responses

The following is a release by the Gloucester Township Police Department:

The Gloucester Township Police Department was fortunate to apply for and receive a grant from the Office of Justice Programs, U.S. Department of Justice “BJA FY 20 Coronavirus Emergency Supplemental Funding Program,” to assist in their emergency responses.

With these funds, a ClorDiSys Lantern UV Disinfection System was purchased to help personnel during their fight against the Coronavirus. This industrial strength light contains ultraviolet C (UVC) bulbs that will easily and quickly kill mold spores, bacteria and viruses in the air and on surfaces in mere minutes with a chemical-free disinfection process.

This new tool will protect personnel from contracting or spreading the Coronavirus that could drastically hinder police protection and responses. The Gloucester Township Police Department is using the lantern as another method to disinfect vehicles, equipment and offices within police headquarters in conjunction with the regular cleaning being done daily by our Public Works Department.

This will not only increase the safety of our police officers and employees, but our valued community who our police department comes in contact with daily.
