U.S. paying for Canadian police emergency radios
The Department of Homeland Security is paying up to $7,000 each for 30 multi-band radios to be used by Canadian first responders in border cities that share U.S. waterways.
The Americans are paying as much as $14,000 US for two new, state-of-the-art radios to be used by the Windsor Police Service.
Officials on both sides of the border say the devices should make the city's waterways safer this summer.
By the end of the year, the U.S. department will have paid for approximately 30 new radios to be used by Canadian first responders in Windsor and Essex County. All paid for by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
The department has also bought 10 radios, already in use, in Sault Ste. Marie.
