WPD's Grant-Writing Extraordinaire

Westbrook police Capt. Tom Roth does grant-writing
as a sideline, and he's quite good at it. The city's police department pulled in
more than $500,000 in grants this year through his efforts, which tapped into
economic stimulus funds and other sources.
Westbrook Police Chief William Baker said
each grant application targets a specific need in the city. He attributed
Roth's success to his experience in the field. "It gives him an edge,"
Baker said. "I think that's part of the reason he is so successful and we
are benefiting from the numbers we are."
