JASPER COUNTY, MS (WDAM) - Jasper County residents are continuing to show their support for law enforcement.
This week, the members of Heidelberg United Methodist Church donated money to help the Jasper County Sheriff's Department purchase two new tasers.
Sheriff Randy Johnson said he appreciated the donation.
"If they didn't like what we were doing or appreciate the job we do, then they wouldn't be doing what they do," Johnson said. "I hear all the time from the churches, 'we pray for you, we keep you in our thoughts and prayers,' and in our department, that's a great thing."
Just two weeks ago, 18 local churches, the Jasper County Baptist Association and several private citizens donated money to purchase high-velocity bullet proof vests for the Jasper County Sheriff's Department, the Bay Springs Police Department, the Heidelberg Police Department and Louin Police.
