Smith County Sheriff's Department Gets Help From Local Grocery Store

The Smith County Sheriff's Department has a new addition to their training facility. This morning, Brookshire's Grocery Company donated a 45 foot trailer to be used by the sheriff's department's SWAT team. The sheriff's department says it has needed a storage facility for a long time. Brookshire's put shelves inside the trailer for the SWAT team to store items used at the firing range.

"Brookshire's Grocery Company has been instrumental in law enforcement, not only here locally, but anywhere they have a facility, they are there to help the community," said Smith County Sheriff J.B. Smith. "We would not have a training facility today if it were not for this organization." Also added to the trailer, lights and an alarm system to protect the materials inside.
