Clewiston Police Department AED Donation

Several weeks ago, the Police & Kids Foundation received an equipment grant request from the Clewiston Police Department in Henry County for new AED’s, individual trauma kits, and one advance trauma kit.  The Clewiston Police Department is a small, 22 employee department in a rural agricultural community.  Many times police officers will be the first to arrive on scene of tragic situations and having the right equipment could mean the difference between life and death.    

On Monday, September 19, 2022, Police & Kids Foundation President Tracey Schofield presented Clewiston Police Chief, Thomas Lewis, and the Clewiston City Commission with 6 brand new Automated External Defibrillators (AED’s).  The AED’s will be carried by all on-duty officers, one will be mounted at the police department and the other will be mounted at the Animal Services facility that the police department manages.  Also provided were 6 personal trauma kits that each officer on duty will have immediately available in an emergency and one advanced trauma kit that will be carried by the on-duty supervisor at all times.  These trauma kits have advanced lifesaving equipment not normally carried by patrol officers that will allow them to provide aid much more quickly in an emergency situation. 

The Police & Kids Foundation wishes to thank all of the citizens who have purchased the “Fallen Law Enforcement Officer” specialty plate.  The proceeds from the sale of our plate are used for the families of fallen first responders in Florida, provide much-needed equipment to smaller Florida law enforcement agencies, and allow us to support children throughout Florida in many different ways.

Golf Cart Donation – St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office

Several months ago, it was brought to the Police and Kids Foundations attention that the St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office was asking for public assistance in equipping their new Equestrian unit that was created approximately a year and a half ago. The Foundation reached out to the Sheriff’s Office and offered their help.

On Friday, August 19, 2022, Police and Kids Foundation President, Tracey Schofield met with Sheriff Robert Hardwick of the St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office and some of his staff at their Administrative Office. At this meeting, Tracey and the Foundation officially donated a brand-new golf cart to the Sheriff’s Equestrian unit to support efforts within their community. The Sheriff’s Office was very appreciative of the donation. In a sign of gratitude, the Sheriff’s Office was kind enough to display on the cart that the donation came from the Police and Kids Foundation.

The Police and Kids Foundation was very happy to support the citizens of St. Johns County and the brave men and women who protect them every day and proud to be one of their Community Partners.
