Two Alabama elected officials visited the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office to show their support of local law enforcement on Friday.
Senator Steve Livingston and Representative Nathaniel Ledbetter presented Sheriff Nick Welden, Nathan Nail, and Mike Stone with checks for ‘much-needed beacons that will be worn by first responders on their uniforms.
These beacons allow pilots to be able to tell a difference between victims and first responders during search and rescue operations at night.
“It’s a great feeling when our elected officials at the State level recognize the hard work and sacrifice of our First Responders here in DeKalb County. We are blessed to have the hardest working and most dedicated responders,” Sheriff Welden said in a statement.
