Governor Charlie Baker, today, will be joined by members of the Legislature and members of the police community when he signs H.4516, An Act relative to the municipal police training fund.
The legislation, spearheaded by Cape and Islands State Senator Julian Cyr following the murder of Yarmouth K9 Sgt. Sean Gannon, will add a two dollar surcharge for all car rentals in Massachusetts. That is expected to generate $10 million annually which will go to police departments throughout Massachusetts for increased training and recruitment.
The signing takes place at 4 p.m. in room 360 of the State House.
