On Wednesday, the Jim Hudson Automotive extended a cheque worth $25,000 to the Lexington County Sheriff’s Foundation at the Jim Hudson Ford located in Lexington. Jay Koon, the Lexington County Sheriff mentioned that this donation of $25,000 shall cater about 70 full sets of the armoured rifle carriers and plates. This will be used by the deputies during any active threat cases or similar tactical situations.
Each of these gears sets cost somewhere around $350. The office currently has just 19 such sets. The additional carriers and plates shall be issued for the resource officers at schools as well as the deputies at front-line.
As stated by the LCSD, these items shall allow the deputies to revert to a situation in an effective manner. The deputies shall now render a personal protection within the high-risk and rapidly evolving situations. These carriers & plates are created to improve the survivability of a deputy as he engages in a deadly situation.
Founder and CEO of the Jim Hudson Automotive Group, Jim Hudson, received a contribution plaque by the LCSD.
In his statement, Jim Hudson stated that the law enforcement officials risk their lives on a daily basis to protect the citizens. It is necessary that the officers should receive all the necessary resources and support they require.
