HERKIMER, N.Y. – Herkimer Police Department D.A.R.E. program has added three new patrol bikes and equipment with funds donated from the Arc Herkimer.

“We have over 40 different sites throughout Herkimer County, a majority of which are right in Herkimer, and the Herkimer Police Department is working hard every day to make the community a great place to be for everyone. Safety and security are so important. We just wanted to give them a little help with that,” said Anthony Visconti, executive vice president of business operations at the Arc Herkimer.

The Arc Herkimer made the donation to provide new tools to help the department protect and serve the area.

“Arc Herkimer is all about building community. We want people to connect with us and the individuals we support, from our Goods Store to our Arc Park, and everything in between.  There are good things happening in Herkimer and we hope the community recognizes our contributions in that regard,” said Kevin Crosley, president and CEO of the Arc Herkimer.

Herkimer Police Chief Michael Jory says that the bikes will be used in the D.A.R.E. program for ground patrol throughout the community, including the Arc Park.
