Redwood City Mayor Rosanne Foust and port board Chairman Richard Dodge said they are grateful for the money, which will go toward things like the improvement of the Police Department's patrol boat.

"This will offer some needed improvements to the port's security systems and help ensure that we're well prepared for an emergency," Dodge said.

Foust added that the grants will "further the ongoing coordination between the port and Police Department on security and emergency preparedness."

The Port Security Grant Program is one of six grants created by the Department of Homeland Security to focus on transportation infrastructure security activities.
