Kennett PD gets money from residents to protect residents

KENNETT, MO (KAIT) - Several people in Kennett have made monetary donations to the Kennett Police Foundation, raising almost $14,000.

"I was contacted by several business leaders, business owners, and some others in the community wanting to know what they could do to help," said Kennett Police Chief James Paine.

The Kennett Police Foundation is a non-profit organization where folks can make donations, and then designate where they want those donations to go towards.

Chief Paine said they plan on using the money to upgrade their weapons, and to order equipment they don't have enough of.

"We only have two tasers for the police department," said Paine.

Purchasing more tasers gives officers another option to use when a confrontation occurs where force is required. Chief Paine said he is appreciative towards the community, and is overwhelmed by such generosity.

If you would like to donate to Kennett Police Department, please call (573) 888-4622.
