Oroville, Ca—Not long ago, with the help of a Homeland Security grant and community donations, Butte County Sheriff’s Office was able to purchase trauma kits for all front line law enforcement officers in Butte County. The kits cost $90 each and have the potential to save lives of both citizen and officer. In order for the trauma kits to be used correctly, BCSO has coordinated multiple trainings for area law enforcement officers.
BCSO would like to invite the media to attend a trauma kit training event on Friday, June 6th at 9:30am. The training will take place at the BCSO Training Center located at 1222 Openshaw Road in Oroville. This is a great opportunity for photos and video coverage highlighting the use of trauma kits. Please arrive promptly in order to have the opportunity for photos and video, the training ends at 10am. Representatives from BCSO and surrounding agencies will be available for interviews immediately following the training.
