LITTLETON — The Littleton Select Board on Monday voted unanimously to use nearly $75,000 in COVID-era federal funding from the American Rescue Plan Act to advance two public safety-related projects spearheaded by the fire and police departments. At the forefront are portable electronic sign boards that can be employed for multiple uses, as well as computer software for the police department accreditation now required by the state and for the improvement of first responder training and accountability. “The sign boards being proposed are multi-disciplinary and can be used for law enforcement, but can also be used for public health and pandemic emergencies like what we went through with COVID,” said Little Fire Rescue Chief Michael McQuillen.
