Posted on April 6, 2023


(HARTFORD) — On Thursday, April 6th, the State Bond Commission convened to discuss and approve requested funding for several statewide programs and initiatives. In their meeting, the commission approved the $50,306 to reimburse Shelton’s Police Department for the purchase of body cameras, dash cameras, and video storage devices.

State Representative Jason Perillo (R-113) expressed his gratitude for the work of the State Bond Commission this morning. “I am pleased to see the Bond Commission allocate funds supporting our local law enforcement,” said Rep. Perillo. “This funding will cover the cost of state-of-the-art video technology that allows our officers to effectively carry out their duties. I will continue prioritize our police who work tirelessly to maintain the safety and well-being of our community and I am thankful for their dedication and service to the city of Shelton.”

The State Bonding Commission approved a total of $99 million in state funding in the form of grants under the Community Investment Fund 2030, which was initiated in 2022 to financially support economic development programs across Connecticut. Projects range from affordable housing, infrastructure, and public facility improvements to small business support programs and reimbursements, as received by Shelton’s Police Department.
