Rosen Visits West Wendover Police Station, Highlights Federal Funding She Helped Secure to Upgrade Dispatch Equipment

WEST WENDOVER, NV – Today, U.S. Senator Jacky Rosen (D-NV) toured the West Wendover Police Station with Mayor Daniel Corona, West Wendover Police Chief Cal Kunz, and other city officials to highlight the federal funding she helped secure with Senator Catherine Cortez Masto (D-NV). Both Nevada Senators secured $376,000 in the bipartisan funding bill to upgrade the station’s dispatch center and telecommunications.

“Our first responders in West Wendover work tirelessly to keep Nevadans safe,” said Senator Rosen. “I’m proud to visit the police department today and see firsthand how the federal funding I helped secure will give them the resources and tools they need to do their jobs and better respond to Nevadans in need. I will continue working to see that Nevada has the federal funds it needs to keep Nevadans safe.”

“This funding to upgrade our police department’s dispatch center will help to increase public safety in our city,” said Daniel Corona, Mayor of the City of West Wendover. “Thanks to the work of Senators Rosen and Cortez Masto, our city’s officers will be able to better connect and communicate with those in need and respond quickly to emergencies.”

Senators Rosen and Cortez Masto have been leaders in securing funding for Nevada law enforcement agencies. In addition to the funding they secured for this project, they also got funding for the Las Vegas Metropolitan Departments as a part of the bipartisan government funding package for Fiscal Year 2022.
