Donations being accepted for Adopt-A-Cop 2007
Every year, The Cherokee County Sheriff's Office purchases protective vests,
also know as a bullet proof vest, for Deputy Sheriffs.
The program, known as "Adopt-A-Cop" allows citizens, business, and civic
organizations to adopt a cop and help provide a protective vest. Ballistic
vests cost approximately $600.00 each, and must be replaced every five
years. The sponsorship cost is $300.00, and the person(s) or group
sponsoring the officer will have his or her picture presenting the officer
with their vest printed in local newspapers.
Persons or groups interested in adopting a cop and providing him with a
protective vest, which may ultimately save his life, can contact Deputy Wes
Foster at 489-4722, ext. 112.
