In March, the Miller County Sheriff’s Office was awarded life saving equipment provided by the United States Deputy Sheriff’s Association. Th​e​ equipment consists of a tourniquet, QuikClot Combat Gauze, and disposable gloves​ – items ​that ​could potentially save the life an injured deputy or citizen in the event of a serious traumatic injury.

​​The trauma kits were provided free of charge on a grant, saving the sheriff’s office and taxpayers nearly $2,000​, according to Sheriff Louis Gregoire​. After receiving training on use and application of these items, deputies will have the kits in their vehicle to use if the need should arise.

“The Deputies of Miller County and I would like to thank the U.S. Deputy Sheriff’s Association and their affiliates for their charitable donation to help protect both us and the citizens we serve,” ​Sheriff ​Gregoire said.
