Lt. Marty Steil and the members of the Dubuque Auxiliary Police would like to thank the Dubuque Racing Association (DRA) for the recently awarded grant in the amount of $5,807.  The grant will be used to replace outdated flashlights, traffic safety vests, and other equipment used by the officers of this entirely volunteer organization. The support provided by the DRA enables these volunteers to continue providing assistance to the Dubuque Police Department and community, resulting in a significant cost savings to tax payers. Thanks again DRA!
