In an effort to ensure Carson City Sheriff’s Office officers are able to meet the physical demands associated with law enforcement, the department is sponsoring the construction of a new fitness facility. The facility will be located within the department for continuous availability and will provide equipment meant for specific job performance demands. Officers must be able to respond to every type of incident and often experience a wide range of emotional and physical stressors. The goal is to promote overall wellness for Carson City’s law enforcement personnel. Previously officers have been individually contributing and seeking funds to support this facility. Officers are now reaching out and requesting community support, a GoFundMe account has been established to help officers reach their fundraising goal of $30,000.
There are many ways to support your local law enforcement, whether through personal advocacy, volunteerism or generous donation, your support encourages a safe and resilient community. Should you choose to donate, your donation will ensure current and future law enforcement officers have the equipment they need to improve their response capabilities.
If you have any questions call the Carson City Sheriff’s Office at (775) 887-2500 and ask for Sheriff Ken Furlong, or board members of CCDSA, Detectives James Boggan and Brett Bindley.
