The Dunkirk Exempt Fireman’s Association recently made a donation to the Dunkirk Police Department Equipment Fund. With those funds the Department was able to purchase 2 new Alco-Sensor units that will be a valuable tool for Investigating Driving Under the Influence incidents. The Dunkirk Exempts are very generous to the Police Department on a regular basis and their donations have helped to fund many equipment needs in the past.
The Police Department is very grateful to have organizations that support Public Safety in our community and we thank all the Club officials and Members of the Dunkirk Exempts for their continued generosity and support.
