Grant Money from The NRA Foundation
Sheriff Jimmy Harris states as follows:
Recently The NRA foundation came and awarded the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office a grant totaling $3205.00 to help fund the backup weapons for the deputies we bought last year.
Friends of NRA is a grassroots fund-raising program that fosters community involvement to organize and, with help from NRA field staff, plan community events for firearms enthusiasts. All net proceeds from Friends of NRA events are allocated to The NRA Foundation, the leading charitable organization in support of the shooting sports. Through NRA Foundation grants for equipment, training materials, range improvements, and more, qualified local, state, and national programs receive aid to involve and inspire a new generation of competitive shooters.

Sheriff Harris says “We are very excited that the NRA Foundation awarded us with this grant money to help pay for the backup weapons for the deputies and pleased that the NRA is making an investment in our community. It was a great surprise and pleasure to have the friends of the NRA Mike Parsons, Jean Newman, Jim Johnson for coming to the office present us with this check. ”
