The police department is often entitled with ensuring the wellbeing of the society at large. They are meant to uphold the level of security within any community and prevent the progression and if possible the prevent individuals from breaking the law. Many times, they are unable to perform their duties effectively because of several reasons, the main one in several instances being under provision of required resources by the government.

Required Equipment

Equipment such as the two way mobile radios, on body police cameras and facial recognition software are highly effective and often go a long way to ensure that crime is prevented or that the perpetrators of the crime are brought to book; However, several times, in a given unit, these may be lacking and thus pose a great challenge to those in a given department.

Appreciation to the philanthropist:

We are therefore extremely grateful for the large amount of money that was donated to us recently. We believe that this will go a long way into transforming the services that we are able to provide and in the long run, give good security to the community at large.

It therefore follows that additional computers will be added, approximately 10, estimated to cost $120 each. This will then sum up to $1,200.Internet connection is currently present and therefore only a renewal of the initial yearly subscription will be made which costs $1000 (Manning, 2008).
