Berrien County police receive donations for new drone
BERRIEN COUNTY, Mich. – The Berrien County Sheriff’s Office has received donations to buy a new drone with infrared technology, a feature that could help officers find suspects or missing persons easier from the air.
The EVO II drone from Autel Robotics is valued at $11,000, and the thermal recording feature captures a 360-degree view of a scene.
This new drone is funded by donations from Honor Credit Union and Starks Family Funeral Homes & Cremation Services, who said they partnered together for this donation under the common goal of serving and protecting their communities.
“At Honor, we’re committed to giving back to our communities and keeping them safe, and that starts with supporting our first responders,” said Scott McFarland, CEO of Honor Credit Union. “It’s through partnerships with local businesses, like Starks Family Funeral Homes, that share Honor’s values that truly help us make a difference one step at a time.”
