The Linn Creek police department will be getting new equipment. City officials have approved the purchases of a new taser as well as a set of stop-sticks for the department. Police Chief Greg Berry says that by having as many options as possible available to the officers, it will help keep the public, as well as the officers, safer.
The purchase comes at a bargain for the city. The items are approved by their insurance company and 70% of the costs are expected to be covered by grants.
