In late October, the Lawrence County Sheriffâ€™s Dive Team began receiving material purchased through a grant provided by the Lawrence County OES. This is the second time that Sheriff Dotsonâ€™s team has received funding for equipment needed by the team.
This and other grants received by the Sheriffâ€™s Office help buy needed gear that otherwise would have to come from the Sheriffâ€™s budget, to date the dive team has received around $25,000 in gear that was no cost to the county.
Among the most needed item received was sonar gear for the Sheriffâ€™s OfficeÂ boat. In the past, the Pocahontas Fire Department has always brought in their sonar to assist Lawrence County. Sheriff Dotson stated he appreciates the Pocahontas Fire Department and says both groups will continue to assist each other.
Sheriff Dotson wished to extend a â€œThank Youâ€ to Will Tate and the entire Lawrence County OES team for their continued support.
