In a generous act of support for local law enforcement education, the Clarendon County Sheriff's Department has donated a fully equipped training vehicle to the F.E. Dubose Career Center Law Enforcement Program. Sheriff Tim Baxley officially handed over the keys to the vehicle earlier today.

The donation was received by Mrs. Ladell Grice, the esteemed Law Enforcement Instructor at F.E.

The donated vehicle is over mileage for the fleet and has been replaced by a newer vehicle to ensure officers have the most updated tools to do their job. The now training vehicle is equipped with state-of-the-art features including working lights, a walkie system, and an onboard camera system. These tools are essential for providing students with realistic, hands-on workforce simulated learning experiences. This addition to the program will allow students to practice real-world scenarios in a controlled and educational environment, enhancing their readiness for future careers in law enforcement.

Mrs. Grice expressed her gratitude for the donation: “This vehicle is not just a tool, but a significant asset in enhancing the educational experience of our students. It will provide them with invaluable practical exposure to the technology and equipment used in modern law enforcement.”
