Last week Kaufman County Sheriff Brian Beavers received unanimous approval from the County Commissioner’s Court to purchase eight pairs of night vision goggles for the county SWAT team.
Addressing the Commissioner’s Sheriff Beavers said “What we’re doing is applying to Homeland Security for some night vision goggles, trying to save a little money using government funding to pay for them. So that’s what we’re asking for approval to apply for, because it needs court approval.”
After a brief discussion on the valued usage of night vision goggles, County Judge Hal Richards stated “What’s before us is to consider approving the application for the funding of night vision goggles for the Kaufman County SWAT Team through Homeland Security.”
Unanimously agreeing the Commissioners Court approved funding for eight pairs of night vision goggles for the Kaufman County Sheriff’s SWAT team.
