Ohio County Sheriff Glen Potts has announced that the sheriff’s office has received a $5000 grant from the Ohio County community foundation. This grant will purchase brand new ballistic vests for the deputies.
Throughout many years, ballistic vests have saved numerous police lives since their inception. Most every department requires their officers to wear the vests while on duty. This grant ensures that each Ohio County Sheriff’s Deputy will have the most up-to-date and adequate vests to help keep them safe while on duty.
