Donation: BPD receives technology to protect first responders against COVID-19 The Bluffton Police Department accepted a generous donation from Dust Solutions and Global Infection Control Consultants to protect its officers and other first responders in the area against COVID-19.
During a demonstration earlier today, officers learned how to use the donated equipment to treat a vehicle for potential COVID-19 contamination.
The companies donated 100 bottles of disinfectant, as well as a fogger.
