In a letter to Markell, Senate President Pro Tem Tony DeLuca and House Speaker Bob Gilligan, Montgomery asks for $1.6 million and another year of State Police helping our city police -- at an unknown cost.
"Funding for some outreach workers - I'm proposing here a team of five street workers and one supervisor; some additional funding for summer jobs, and finally capital funding for technology improvements that could help the Wilmington Police respond quicker and with enhanced officer safety," says Montgomery.

Montgomery is also looking for $300,000 for over-time for Wilmington Police and $100,000 to consult with experts in New York, who helped implement Wilmington's "Safe Communities" model.
