October 28, 2012 (El Cajon)-- The El Cajon Police Department has been awarded a grant from the San Diego County Law Enforcement Foundation (SDCLEF,) which enabled the Police Department to purchase a night vision monocular. This tool will be used by the Patrol Division to assist in searching dark alleys, vacant buildings and open areas. The night vision will be also be used to locate suspects taking advantage of darkness to conceal themselves while attempting to evade arrest during nighttime hours.
Over the years, SDCLEF has provided funding to local law enforcement agencies for equipment and educational scholarships. The El Cajon Police Department is honored to have been granted this award. It is through the Foundation's generosity that police agencies around the county can better serve and protect the citizens of their communities.
