The Hopkinsville Police Department has issued a statement regarding a local fundraiser meant to help on-duty officers.
A news release from HPD says the department wants to inform local citizens that the Christian County Fraternal Order of Police is currently soliciting money by phone to help supplement the cost of bullet proof vests for local law enforcement.
Hopkinsville Police say they don’t want to discourage anyone from making a donation, but do want citizens to know that they do not receive any money or benefits from the F.O.P. fundraisers.
All bullet proof vests worn by Hopkinsville Police officers are purchased through grants and local tax revenue, according to the release.
