[ARCHIVED] KPD Recipient of Home Depot Grant Thanks to KCPAAA

For the second year in a row, the Kerrville Citizen Police Academy Alumni Association (KCPAAA) called on the Home Depot Foundation and the local Home Depot staff to assist in projects to improve creature comforts at the Kerrville Police Department.

Last year, improvements were made to the department’s primary break room, office flooring, hallway molding, and improvements to three restrooms. This year, the Home Depot Foundation supplied funds toward the upgrading of the small break room and restroom in the Communications section of the police department.

The dedicated employees in the Communications section answer 9-1-1 calls and direct the activities of police officers, fire and EMS 24 hours a day, seven days a week. It is very difficult for a dispatcher to leave their stations to take normal breaks in the primary break room, and must stay within earshot of the radio and telephones; thus the need for their own break room and restroom.

No improvements have been made since the police department moved into its present location in 1995.

Following the approval of the grant request, the local Home Depot took the next step, and six Home Depot associates accomplished the upgrade in grand style. All cabinets were replaced, as were countertops, and the sink. The walls in both the break room and restroom were repainted. The KPD and KCPAAA are very grateful to the Home Depot Foundation and local Home Depot staff members for yet another successful project.
