Cartersville Police Department Donation Recipient of ODMP & HighCom Armor Law Enforcement Campaign

Cartersville Police Department was chosen as the recipient of over $8,000 in HighCom Armor protective body armor in the ODMP x HighCom Armor LE Campaign. Following the nomination from winning donor Don Moody, a retired law enforcement veteran serving 28 years in the Cleveland, Ohio area and who continues serving his community as the Public Safety Instructor at Bartow County College and Career Academy (BCCCA) in Georgia— teaching the students patrol, CSI, tactical team, and EMS training, the donation “came at the perfect time as we have been working to provide new and updated protective gear to the CPD Tactical Team members [and] enables us to outfit one more team member this year,” said Lieutenant Firth from Cartersville Police Department.

As a Public Safety Instructor at BCCCA, Don’s program relies heavily on local law enforcement partners, which is why he chose Cartersville Police Department as the donation recipient stating, “They provide endless support for our high school public safety program . . . they are a wonderful bunch of officers, [and] given their size, they’ve encountered some budget challenges this past year.”

Cartersville Police Department received the prize package:
