The city of Radcliff is applying for a series of new grants through the Kentucky Department of Homeland Security.

The grants will benefit communications for the police and fire departments, particularly its radio systems.

Police Chief Jeff Cross on Tuesday told city council that one grant would establish another receiver on the south end of town to aid in making the radio system fully digital. The application is for roughly $46,000 and would not require a cash match by the city. Another grant would fund 12 mobile radios at $19,980 and 12 handheld radios at $17,340 with no cash match needed.

The Radcliff Fire Department also is applying for another grant for four mobile data terminals for vehicles, which will improve communication. The application is for $18, 728 with no match needed.
