(DAVIESS CO.) - The Daviess County Commissioners approved a request to use E-911 funds to provide 21st century technology to Washington's police officers.

In making the request to add GPS tracking to Washington's police cars, Washington Police Chief Todd Church says it would help emergency response by giving dispatchers a way to get the closest car to an emergency situation.

Church also said City Police would be better able to assist the County Sheriff's Department. The Sheriff's department already has the capability.

The technology would also help coordinate Police and Fire Department responses to emergencies.

The Commissioners approved the use of $115,776 from the E-911 fund. Gabhart noted that this type of request was what the fund was established for, and it uses no additional tax dollars.
