Caernarvon Township Police Department awarded grant for body cameras

The Caernarvon Township Police Department Monday formally accepted a grant in the amount of $5,000.00 from Energy Transfer, which aided in the purchase of equipment to enhance the department’s response capabilities.

Energy Transfer is one of the largest and most diversified energy logistics companies in the country, with approximately 3,000 miles of pipeline infrastructure and gathering systems located in Pennsylvania.

“With a rising population in Caernarvon Township and new officers added to our force, these additional cameras will go a long way in our response efforts,” said Caernarvon Township Detective Sergeant Chad Eberly. “We’re grateful to Energy Transfer for its continued support of our department and dedication to protecting our community.”

The grant enabled the purchase of additional body cameras for the department. This award follows a separate grant from Energy Transfer in 2021, which provided $9,955 for the department to purchase body cameras at that time.

“First responders in Caernarvon Township work hard every day to protect the community and keep residents safe, and it’s an honor to be able to support them in their efforts,” said Josh Snyder, Lead Specialist, Public Affairs at Energy Transfer. “We view our relationship with the first responders as a two-way partnership, and we look forward to more collaboration in years to come.”

Grants are determined based on a competitive application and review process, and written applications are accepted on a rolling basis for the following cycle.
