Member Certification Form

Use of Funds and Justification: 

The funding would be used for bi-directional amplifiers and cellular distributed antenna systems to help improve radio communications in buildings where signals are degraded due to dense construction and other obstacles. 

This is an appropriate use of taxpayer funds becuase it will help the Rochester Police Department to communicate more effectively during emergency school incidents and provide a better on-scene response during emergencies.
