Adopt-A-Cop Program now accepting donations
The Cherokee County Sheriff's Office is now accepting donations for the Adopt-A-Cop Program. The program allows persons and businesses to purchase a new bullet-proof vest for a Deputy. A new vest costs approximately $600.00 and must be replaced every five years. The Sheriff's Office receives a grant from the US Department of Justice to pay up to half of the total cost of the vest. Any individual or business participating would make a total donation of $300.00.
Interested persons and businesses may select a specific Deputy to honor with a vest, or a general donation may be made. Announcements will be made through local media outlets of donations, and pictures will be made if desired.
For further information, please contact Sheriff Blanton or Sgt. Wes Foster at 864-489-4722.
