Sheriff thanks Elks for donations

To the Editor:

I am writing to thank the Troy Elks for their recent generous grant donations to the Miami County Sheriff’s Office that enabled us to purchase a ballistic vest for our canine Bear and also purchase two transmitters and accessories for Project Lifesaver.

This will make the third year that the Troy Elks has provided grant funding for Project Lifesaver, which enables us to continue offering this very valuable service at no cost to the public. Additionally, the Troy Elks has also provided us with several thousand pieces of drug safety literature and several hundred pieces of drug awareness products that will be distributed by our school resource officers and special events throughout the county to include our upcoming sheriff’s youth camp.

I and my staff could not be more grateful to the officers and members of the Troy Elks for all they do for the Sheriff’s Office and community. Thank you!
