The Princeton Police Department was recently awarded $24,000 for Automated External Defibrillators, also known as A.E.D. machines.

According to Princeton Police Chief Derek McGraw, the lifesaving machines were made possible by a Jag Grant from the Indiana Criminal Justice Institute Tuesday.

The department was granted 18 units, so every officer can have one for immediate responses.

Each officer in the department will also need to maintain a CPR Certification every two years.

Monday morning, we will see partly sunny skies with temperatures still in the mid 20°s. By the afternoon, we will be warming up into the mid 40°s with cloud coverage increasing. This is due to a cold front expected to traverse the tri-state overnight Monday.
