Law Enforcement Fire Protection Council Awards

Nevada County Law Enforcement and Fire Protection Council raises funds each year to provide Police and  Fire agencies with needed items that  they otherwise could not  afford in light of  dwindling budgets. The Council also supports scholarships, Grad Night and the Every 15 Minutes anti DUI school program.   Board President Bob Medlin says this year the Law Enforcement and Fire Protection council  will donate a combined $69,256 worth of services and equipment to the local community.

Sheriff Keith Royal says all local  law enforcement and fire agencies will receive upgrades to their communication systems.
