CIP - Police

The Police Department portion of the proposed fiscal years 2024-2029 Capital Improvements Program (CIP) totals $244,000 in FY2024 for two ongoing projects. 

Police Cruiser Replacement Program

This is a continuance of Dover's plan to replace frontline, equipped police vehicles. The program purchases four new police cruisers each year. This program is essential to maintain safe vehicle operation and limit maintenance costs.

Vehicles taken offline are sold. The sales revenue is used to purchase smaller, more fuel-efficient vehicles for other city departments in need of vehicles.

Cost: $144,000

Public Safety Communications / Security Improvements

This project upgrades specific infrastructure related to public safety radio communications to enhance firefighters and police officer safety. It provides greater resiliency for communications and alarming while improving overall service delivery with increased bandwidth and reliability and reduced latency. Annual funding allows for the manageable replacement and repair of system components to safeguard against critical system failures and protect against expensive repair and replacement costs.

Cost: $100,000
