Grand Forks Police seek OK for night vision gear

While it has the funding all wrapped up, the Grand Forks Police Department still needs approval from the city before it can order two night vision scopes for weapons.

The purchase received preliminary approval from the City Council’s Service/Safety Committee on Tuesday.

The scopes are priced at about $10,000 each and would be used by the Grand Forks Regional SWAT Team in situations involving dark environments.

The Police Department secured grant money for 100 percent of the price through the North Dakota Department of Emergency Services.
