  1. The Virginia Attorney General's Office provided us funding for two new K-9 vehicles and a Community Response Van. All vehicles have been delivered and are fully operational. (Sean Dunn - June 14, 2017)
  2. MF and EMS are planning on purchasing a new ambulance once the last payment is made on our most recent fire engine. During this time frame, grants are being applied for in order to help offset the expense. (Teddy Anderson - July 11, 2016)
  3. MF and EMS are currently in need of the replacement of at least one of our ambulances. This request along with many others was removed from the FY 17 capital request due to budget restraints. We are relying on our fleet manager to keep our vehicles operational. (Teddy Anderson - July 11, 2016)
  4. Employees are included in various committees and work groups to ensure resources, equipment, and technologies are well considered prior to purchase and deployment. (Sean Dunn - June 21, 2016)
  5. The MPD remains a fiscally conscious department. In addition to ensuring budgetary dollars are expended wisely, outside funding and technologies are leveraged to ensure citizen needs are met while maximizing officer safety and efficiency. (Sean Dunn - June 21, 2016)
