Andrea Hale, Charitable Contribution Coordinator with Georgia Pacific, and Pam Gibbs H.R. Director at the Hope Plant, Present Sheriff James Singleton a $5,000.00 Check to be used to purchase Armor Plated Vests for the Hempstead County Deputies and Reserve Deputies.
The Vests which weigh approximately 40 pounds with all the gear attached are designed to put rifle resistant armor inside the front and back of each vest. They are designed to wear over the soft body armor each deputy wears to add to their protection against high power rifles.
The 25 vest’s and 50 armor plates costs approximately $8,000.00 and Georgia Pacific’s generous contribution will help Reduce the taxpayers cost, to provide our deputies with this vital equipment. Had it not been for Georgia Pacific’s contribution we would not have been able to purchase these vests.
Thank You Georgia Pacific, Andrea, and Pam for your support of our Hempstead County Deputies.
“IN GOD WE TRUST”
Sheriff James Singleton
