Two All Terrain Vehicles (ATVs) were recently donated to the Greene County Sheriff’s Office. The two 2018 Polaris Sportsman 450 H.O. Four Wheelers were donated by the Tommy Summerville Police Support League which is the charity at The Palace Bingo, the latest electronic bingo entity licensed by Sheriff Benison.
The ATVs will be used to assist deputies on Project Life Saver and K-9 searches, rescues and when needed as crowd control at special events as well as during incidents such as severe weather. They may also be used in ares of high crime for off road surveillance by law enforcement officers.
Sheriff Benison stated: “This is just another example of how Amendment 743 Electronic Bingo is vital to our community. Through my rules and regulations the TSPSL was able to have the funds to provide my department with this equipment and we appreciate them for it. We will now be able to go into places our everyday vehicles wouldn’t allow. This advancement cuts down on the time it takes to get to individuals in emergency situations.”
