 Sheriff Rick Ramsay met with command staff from other local law enforcement agencies today to give out equipment purchased for those agencies by the Sheriff’s Office. The purpose of the equipment purchases: to help with the collective mission of keeping the residents of and visitors to Monroe County safe.

Sheriff Ramsay and Key Colony Beach Chief Kris 
DiGiovanni talk about equipment purchased for KCB Police.
“All of our agencies work together on a regular and frequent basis and we want to make sure we all have up to date and state of the art equipment to help us do our jobs,” said Sheriff Ramsay. “I was happy to be able to help with that by purchasing this equipment.”

The equipment included 100 body cameras for Key West Police, GPS/Chart Plotters, game cameras and Nite Optics binoculars for Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, AED Lifepaks and Arbitrator video recorders for Key Colony Beach Police and laptop computers, Lidar Lasers and Radar units for the Florida Highway Patrol.

The money for the equipment came from fees the Sheriff’s Office collects for grant administration. The Sheriff’s Office administers a number of large grants including the South Florida High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area grant.
