KENT, OHIO – The Brimfield Township Police Department will undergo renovations thanks to new federal resources. U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH) today announced that the Brimfield Township Police Department was awarded resources from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA)’s Rural Development Agency to renovate the existing police station, increase office space, and construct a larger holder facility. 

“Ohio communities rely on strong Ohio police officers equipped with the tools needed to do their jobs and keep the public safe,” Brown said. “The safety of our communities is critical for Ohio citizens and businesses.”

The USDA’s Community Facility Guaranteed Loan will provide $1,600,000 to make these safety improvements.  The Community Facility Guaranteed Loan program, according to the USDA, can make and guarantee loans to develop essential community facilities in rural areas and towns of up to 20,000 in population. Loans and guarantees are available to public entities such as municipalities, counties, and special-purpose districts, as well as to non-profit corporations and tribal governments.
