During the ceremony Garcia will announce the funding of 12 new police cars for the City of Belen Police Department. In addition, he will announce the funding of a new water filtration treatment system for the city of Belen. USDA Community Programs authorize the financing of these types of projects in rural communities across the United States.
Earlier this year, the U.S. Senate passed a resolution to create, “First Responders Recognition Day” Oct. 28, 2019.
The celebration was created to honor those that have chosen a career to serve the public in law enforcement, firefighting and emergency medical services.
