All Chillicothe Police Department officers received new winter coats thanks to a grant.

During the month of February 2019, officers of the Chillicothe Police Department (CPD) were outfitted with new winter coats and search/duty gloves. These items were purchased with grant monies received from the 2019 Local Law Enforcement Block Grant. Of the $9,984.60 awarded through the grant, $5,874.46 was utilized for the purchase of the coats and gloves for all 18 members of the police department.

The police department decided to purchase the Blauer Gore-Tex lined Cruiser coats due to their high heat retaining values and professional look. The police department patch was affixed to the left upper arm of the coat and an American Flag was affixed to the right upper arm.

The Hexarmor search and duty gloves are made with superfabric which are cut and needle prick resistant.

Sgt. Jeremy Stephens applied for and received this grant. Sgt. Stephens and Chief Maples shared the same vision on the professional, but comfortable look they were hoping to achieve.
