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.”
