Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost announced Thursday the donation of critical personal protective equipment (PPE) from the Bureau of Criminal Investigation (BCI) to sheriff’s departments across the state. BCI’s laboratory is donating over 30,000 gloves, 1,428 masks, 642 lab coats, and other various items of clothing, according to Yost.
The PPE donations are being directed to some of the smallest sheriff’s offices across the state.
“Our mission at BCI is to support local law enforcement – usually by processing a crime scene or DNA – but today, we are donating the PPE critically needed by first responders,” Yost said. “This pandemic requires everyone to do their part, and we’re proud to chip in with these supplies.”
