WELLFLEET - Earlier this week, Wellfleet Police Chief Ronald Fisette announced that his department had received an LED sign trailer through a United States Homeland Security grant. This is the second such sign to be granted to towns of Cape Cod. At the end of January, Sandwich Police Chief Peter Wack made a similar announcement.
As with the Sandwich PD sign trailer, the Wellfleet sign will be used by Wellfleet police and other departments in town to keep motorists informed of road closures, special events and other pertinent announcements. In a statement, the chief said the sign will also be made available to the towns surrounding Wellfleet.
The sign, valued at $24,000, was made possible through a grant from the Homeland Security Office. Twelve such signs were distributed to municipalities in Southeastern Massachusetts and Cape Cod via the Southeastern Regional Planning & Economic Development District.
