Local Police Department Receives Donation for Lifesaving Equipment From the Medical Staff at Largo Medical Center

 

(LARGO, FL – April 2019) – Active shooter episodes continue to have law enforcement nationwide weary about heading into these dangerous situations. Thanks to a request made to the Medical Staff at Largo Medical Center by local officer Brian Livernois, 40 officers in the Largo Police Department (LPD) will now be able to assess these events with more confidence than ever before. That’s because of a $20,000 donation helping the department suit up with special protective armor called rifle plates.

 

“This donation allows us to outfit these patrol officers with an active shooter kit,” said Officer Brian Livernois, Largo Police Department. “ The kit includes a rifle plate carrier, an armor rifle plate, a triple magazine pouch and a trauma kit.”

 

Livernois says when officers respond to an active shooter call, or any call with a threat of violence with a weapon, these kits can be used. The actual rifle plate is light in weight and designed to defeat extremely powerful rifle rounds.

 

“The members of our Medical Staff see firsthand what weapons do to people,” said Paul Steele, MD, Medical Staff Member. “And since we have the capability to assist our community in different ways, why wouldn’t we want to provide this type of additional safety for our local officers giving them more confidence when entering into any violent situation, helping save their lives in the process?”

 

The Medical Staff is having a check presentation to the Largo Police Department on Thursday, April 25 at an the staff’s annual private meeting. Officer Livernois will have a rifle plate on display.
