The Ohio Department of Public Safety (ODPS), through the Ohio Homeland Security Grant Program, has awarded $106,000.00 in Homeland Security Grants to the Montgomery County Office of Emergency Management to support the implementation of state homeland security strategies that address the identified planning, organization, equipment, training, and exercise needs.

$78,000 of the grant funding is being distributed to the Dayton Police Department to refurbishment a bomb investigation robot.  The Dayton Regional Hazmat Team is receiving $28,000 for a thermal imaging camera.

"The program dollars are designed to enhance the capacity of state and local jurisdictions to prevent, prepare for, respond to, and recover from incidents," said OOPS Director John Born. "Ohio is committed to providing the support and guidance necessary to keep our counties and communities safe."

The FY20 13 HSGP supports core capabilities across the five mission areas of prevention, protection,

mitigation, response and recovery.
