George County School District resource officers have needed gear and equipment after receiving a $2,500 Singing River Electric Neighbors Helping Neighbors Community Grant.
Funds from the grant purchased laptop computers, reflective vests, handcuffs, firearm holsters, and other items for the three newly hired district resource officers. The school district serves more than 4,100 students at eight schools and has a goal of providing quality education in a safe and secure atmosphere.
“We are grateful for the Singing River Electric grant program. It’s allowed us to provide our officers the tools needed to protect not only our students and staff but also our community,” said Caleb Davis, Chief of the George County School District Police Department.
