Skelton family steps up to help sheriff’s office replace Tasers

| November 6, 2015

COSHOCTON – The Coshocton County Sheriff’s Office is happy to announce that the Skelton Family stepped forward to help raise funds in an effort to replace outdated Tasers.

In recent years the sheriff office’s Tasers have aged to the point that they are no longer serviceable. As these units no longer work properly, they have been removed from service and have not been replaced. This equipment is vital to the everyday policing of the community and to the safety of officers; however, the expense of replacing all of the units comes at a substantial cost.

In an effort to help the office reach its needed goal of $26,000, Jim, Bob and Joe Skelton from Pomerene, Burns and Skelton have agreed to donate matching funds of up to $12,500.

This extremely generous gift is profoundly appreciated. Anyone wishing to participate with the funding of this endeavor may call the sheriff’s office at 740-622-2411.
