STURGIS, Miss. (AP) - Police officers in Sturgis will have another layer of safety thanks to a donation by 4-County Electric Power Association.

The Columbus-based utility donated nearly $2,800 to the Sturgis Police Department to buy bullet-proof vests.

WTVA-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1MWeS7i ) the donation is enough to allow the department to buy a vest for its four officers.

The board of aldermen voted to accept the money earlier this week.

Chief Doug Hamilton says the money will be presented to the department next month.
