Plymouth Police Chief David Bacon came before the Board of Public Works and Safety last Wednesday where announced that two new officers, Nicholas Kindig and David Finn will be starting soon. He told members the new officers will be officially sworn in the morning of Monday, January 8th.
Additionally, the police chief was seeking approval to apply for a State Department of Health grant.
Chief Bacon explained that by applying for this grant, the police department could receive kits with Narcan nasal spray to assist with drug overdoses. He elaborated a bit, saying that it is a no-match grant specifically targeted to help first responders obtain the overdose antidote.
Board members unanimously approved Chief Bacon’s request to apply for the Department of Health Narcan grant.
