The Roscommon County Community Foundation (RCCF) is pleased to announce that the County of Roscommon has received an $8,260.00 grant. The funding, assisted with outer ballistic vests and personal protection equipment for the Roscommon County Sheriff’s Department.
This grant allowed the Sheriff’s Department to purchase 15 sets of personal protective equipment. The equipment gives extra protection to road patrol officers who are regularly the first responders to any reported incidents. In 2016, approximately 44% of police officer deaths were caused by gunfire; Roscommon County officers will now be better equipped against this statistic.
