CAM­BRIDGE — Benev­o­lent & Pro­tec­tive Or­der of Elks Cam­bridge Lodge 1272 re­cently pre­sented a grant of $3,500 to the Po­lice De­part­ment of the City of Cam­bridge.

The grant was ob­tained from the Elks Na­tional Foun­da­tion (ENF) to be used by the de­part­ment for out­fit­ting new of­fi­cers and other re­cently man­dated ex­penses to im­prove lo­cal law en­force­ment agen­cies’ pro­tec­tive ca­pa­bil­i­ties.

The lodge was par­tic­u­larly con­cerned about re­cent events at schools all over the coun­try and wanted the lo­cal po­lice to have the equip­ment they need to pro­tect stu­dents and all the peo­ple of the area.
