PORT JERVIS - Federal grant money is going to be used on upgrades for the Port Jervis Police Department.

City officials say the department has outgrown its current space inside City Hall and that the $100,000 grant will help it expand and upgrade so police can work more efficiently.

Some of that money will be used to relocate the department’s current recreational center on busy Pike Street to a city-owned property in the quieter, residential neighborhood on Church Street. State Sen. John Bonacic helped Port Jervis secure the funds.
