La Grange, TX -(Ammoland.com)- The NRA Foundation has awarded the Fayette County Sheriff’s Office a grant totaling $4,790 to fund the purchase of Service Pistols and ammunition for Sheriff’s Office Reserve Deputies and Corrections Personnel.
This grant continues a longstanding relationship between the Fayette County Sheriff’s Office and the Friends of NRA, the National Rifle Association’s grassroots fundraising program. The NRA charter pledges support to United States law enforcement agencies and the organization regularly assists departments with procuring equipment and materials necessary to protect their communities.
The Fayette County Sheriff’s Office will use the grant to purchase Glock .40 caliber pistols in order to standardize equipment among deputies, reserves, and corrections officers alongside neighboring agencies including the La Grange and Schulenburg Police Departments, State Game Wardens, and the Constables.
“I would again like to thank Friends of NRA for their continuous support,” Fayette County Sheriff Keith Korenek commented. “We would also like to remind everyone the Tri-County Friends of the NRA Banquet and Fundraiser is going to be held July 24, 2015 at the K of C Hall in Schulenburg.”
