After receiving a $10,000 grant toward $15,000 body cameras, the Lake Ozark Police Department turned toward the community for help. The community stepped up in a big way, helping the department surpass their goal. Then, they realized they needed another $3,000 for additional memory on their server. Chief Gary Launderville says the community stepped up again. They’re still getting money in, even after they’ve reached their new goal.
Chief Launderville says the generosity of the community always amazes him and that additional donations will be put to good use.
