Mercer County gets $300,000 for homeland security

Thursday, October 28, 2010
Mercer County has received grants totaling $300,000 from New Jersey’s homeland security agency to buy an explosives sniffing dog and make security improvements at the Trenton-Mercer Airport.

Mercer Sheriff Kevin C. Larkin announced the grants earlier today, saying a $50,000 grant for the dog will also fund an emergency response vehicle and other equipment needed to create a bomb-sniff squad.

The second grant, for $250,000, will enable Mercer’s airport to implement enhancements and upgrades to their current security system that will provide for a more secure facility for air travelers and visitors utilizing the airport.
