Officials in Fullerton and San Clemente this week agreed to accept those cities' shares of a $100-million state fund for law enforcement.
The Citizens Option for Public Safety program, known as COPS, is allocating the money to cities based on population. Fullerton's share is expected to be $287,460, officials said at this week's City Council meeting.
Police Chief Patrick E. McKinley said the money will be spent on new video camera equipment to be mounted in patrol cars, as well as bulletproof vests, heavy armor jackets and raincoats for officers.
Also, hand-held radios will be replaced, the Police Department's indoor shooting range will be upgraded, and officers will receive training on how to end pursuits safely, McKinley said.
