DeKalb Co Sheriff makes policy change; asks for donations for backup weapons

Posted: Updated:
DEKALB COUNTY, AL (WRCB) -

The DeKalb County Sheriff is changing policy.  All certified deputies are to carry a concealed weapon on them at all times while off-duty. 

County officials ordered 55 Glock 43 9mm handguns, which will remain the property of the DeKalb County Sheriff's Office.  All deputies receiving a gun will have to go through certification classes designed for backup weapons. 

The cost for the guns and ammo will be $22-25,000 dollars.  

The Sheriff's Office is taking donations, which are 100% tax deductible, to help offset the cost.  If you would like to donate call 256-845-3801
