“As an agency, we needed to cover the costs of 24 new ballistic vests this year, along with the costs associated with many other pieces of equipment needed to keep our officers safe and effective,” Hayducka said.

According to the police department, they are seeing increased costs for training and equipment for the department’s officers. 

Increased costs of new equipment as well as the training necessary to keep our officers functioning at a high level can become burdensome,” Hayducka said. “The donation of five vests by Petro Pallet helps enormously. We appreciate their support.”
