WV DNR Natural Resources Police officers given safety gloves
The Trooper Eric Workman Foundation recently provided much needed safety gloves for DNR Law Enforcement Section Natural Resources Police Officers within the Sergeant Area containing the counties of Braxton, Clay and Nicholas. These cut resistant search gloves provide protection for six NRP Officers assigned to the above Sergeant's Area. NRP Officers, like other law enforcement, deal with the hazards of suspects who may possess edged weapons, hypodermic needles, and other shar...p instruments which can be used as a weapon. Additionally, NRP Officers, through their continued litter enforcement efforts along our streams, often encounter a myriad of sharp objects and other hazards which make their job exceptionally dangerous. The Foundation appreciates the work of these officer and is glad to assist in their efforts. Pictured: George Workman, Sgt. Shane Duffield, Officer Jeremy Quinn, Cpl. Kevin Bingaman and Officer Stuart Simms.
