FOP helps Westminster PD

Members of the Anderson/Pickens Fraternal Order of Police present check to Interim Westminster Police Chief Mike Crenshaw (third from left)

Pickens and Anderson chapters of the Fraternal Order of the Police are helping fill an equipment need at the Westminster Police Department. The two chapters delivered checks today to Mike Crenshaw, interim Westminster chief. Crenshaw says a bullet-proof vest is as important a piece of equipment as a police officer’s gun. Crenshaw says vests are expensive, but the $1,920 received today will help. A restaurant has offered to donate some of its proceeds from a night of business and it’s possible, according to Crenshaw, that Westminster can qualify next year for a federal grant to help defray the costs of vests. Lt. J-B Kelley of the Pickens County Sheriff’s Department represented the Pickens Chapter of the FOP, while Michael Loftis, executive director, represented the Anderson County chapter.
