Adopt-A-Soldier providing sheriff's office with protective gear

Adopt-A-Soldier Door County is stepping in after last month’s Finance Committee vote denying the request from the Sheriff’s Department for additional protective equipment. The organization will make a $10,000 donation at this week’s meeting earmarked for shields, helmets, and other gear. President Nancy Hutchinson says it makes sense for Adopt-A-Soldier to help law enforcement, given the strong veteran presence on the force. Shaped by her experiences working in public safety in Milwaukee County, Hutchinson says it is amazing how quickly sentiment can turn against officers, even firefighters and EMT personnel.

 


She believes it never hurts to be prepared, especially if other jurisdictions call on Door County for support. The Public Safety Committee meets Monday afternoon , beginning at 1p.m.
