The Brentwood Police Department has generously donated surplus police equipment to the Millersville Police Department. At the last City Commission meeting the commissioners approved for the department to move forward with the donation.
Millersville Police Department is a small department, with limited resources. The town is located north of Nashville, in Sumner County. Their Police Chief David Hindman, sent a request asking for donations of used police equipmentand body armor.
Brentwood Assistant Chief of Police, Tommy Walsh commented, “We currently have multiple surplus items in stock which have been replaced by new equipment and are no longer in use by the Department.”
“Public safety concerns would prevent us from selling much of this equipment to the general public and it has been our experience that selling used equipment of this nature to other departments is generally not successful,” Walsh went on to say.
Items donated include emergency light bars, siren controllers, vehicle partitions, uniform items and expired body armor.
“We are happy to help provide Chief Hindman and the Officers of the Millersville Police Department with this surplus equipment. We appreciate the support of our City Manager and City Commission which makes this possible. Police departments are in the business of helping people,” Walsh said.
“It is especially rewarding for us to assist another agency with equipment that may make it safer or easier for them to do what is becoming a more difficult job each day.”
