Jennings deputies add assault vehicle to fleet

The Jennings County Sheriff’s Department has been gifted an eight-wheeled assault vehicle.

Sheriff Kenny Freeman posted on social media, explaining that the light assault vehicle donation came from Scott County and has grown out of the partnership between the two counties. He noted that the counties have conducted several high risk search warrants together. And the two SWAT teams have partnered to pool resources in order to be more effective and to have more manpower.

Scott County received the light armored vehicles through the federal Law Enforcement Support Office through which the Department of Defense makes equipment available to local law enforcement.

Freeman thanked Scott County Sheriff Jerry Goodin for the partnership and said the sheriff’s office “will continue to build teams with other agencies to increase our capabilities.”
