ANIMAL CARE & CONTROL
Officer Roy Marcum Ballistic Vest
Grant Program Announced
In recognition of the valuable and dangerous work animal control officers across the country carry out each day, the ASPCA® (The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals®) today announced a $100,000 grant to the National Animal Control Association (NACA) to help protect its officers. The funds will be used to support the “Officer Roy Marcum Ballistic Vest Grant Program,” which provides ballistic vests to animal control officers performing field duties for municipal/county/non-profit animal care and control agencies. This grant announcement coincides with the one-year anniversary of the death of Sacramento County Animal Care and Regulation Officer Roy Curtis Marcum, who was tragically killed in the line of duty.
Animal Control Officers interested in the Officer Roy Marcum Ballistic Vest Grant Program should complete an application form. Applications for this program will be accepted until February 01, 2014, or until 500 applications have been received. Following a review of applications by the Grant Committee, grants will be awarded in the amount of $400.00 per vest purchased, up to an agency total of $4,000.00. Additional information regarding the grant program can be found in the complete press release in the link above and on the Officer Roy Marcum Ballistic Vest Grant Application Form.
