A grant from Friends of the National Rifle Association has allowed the purchase of new equipment in order to continue to serve and protect the citizens, staff members and most of all students of North Lamar ISD.
Four body-worn cameras were obtained by the North Lamar ISD Police Department through a law enforcement grant awarded by the Friends of the NRA Foundation.
This law enforcement equipment will aid the North Lamar ISD Police Department in their efforts to continuously equip their police officers with an important array of needed duty gear and other critical safety equipment.
“Captain Jeff Akard brought up the grant back in September of 2017, shortly after the department was formed,” said NL Chief of Police Mike Boaz. “This is a great way to equip our officers and further ensure the safety of our officers while they are protecting students and staff of North Lamar ISD.”
Boaz along with Akard, Officer Daron Dagenhart, and Officer Joe Tuttle would like to thank the local and national Friends of the NRA committee for the grant. This committee of local citizens and its fundraising activities provide grants to eligible law enforcement agencies.
