Where we live: Cheektowaga

Cheektowaga

The Cheektowaga Police Department was among two dozen public safety agencies across the state to receive funding to help reduce motor vehicle theft and insurance fraud.

The department received $38,542.

“Every year, New Yorkers pay millions in higher insurance premiums due to car theft and motor vehicle fraud,” Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo said in a statement. “This funding will help ensure these thieves are caught, these crimes are prosecuted, and motorists no longer have to foot the bill for these crimes.”
