Town of La Plata via Facebook

La Plata, MD- The La Plata Police Department in partnership with the Town of La Plata is proud to offer a third round of Home Video Security Camera Mini-Grants. The purpose of the mini-grant is to provide an opportunity for La Plata residents and small business owners to increase security in and around their home/business.

The majority of criminal events in La Plata are theft related, oftentimes from vehicles and residents yards. Citizens/Small Business Owners who receive a mini-grant must be willing to share any images captured on their video system with the La Plata Police Department during official investigations. The ultimate goal of the Home Video Security Camera Mini-Grant is to give La Plata residents an extra measure of security in and around their homes and to deter criminal activity in the town’s residential neighborhoods.

The Department invites local residents/small business owners to submit an application for review by the La Plata Police Department’s Crime Watch Council. There will be 12 grants awarded for $250. Deadline to submit an application is May 31, 2019. The application for the grant can be found by clicking on the link below. If you have any questions, please give us a call at 301-934-1500.
