What type of public safety equipment and capital improvements will occur with the new sales tax?

The sales tax can be used for the purchase of fire engines and trucks, fire hose and personal protective equipment, police cruisers, police body cameras/software. The Derby Police Department building needs additional office and training space so a portion for the sales tax could be used to cover those design and construction costs.
