On November 6, 2016, the Nam Knights of America, Skipjack Chapter donated a Preliminary Breath Test Instrument to the St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office. The Nam Knights is a group of retired military veterans, active and retired law enforcement officers, who through generous contributions from its members and various fundraisers, give back to veterans, law enforcement, and local community charities through various donations.
Captain Terry Black, Commander of the Patrol Division, was on hand to receive the equipment donation from Chapter President, Ray Nieves, and other various officers within the Nam Knights.
Captain Black stated, “We are very appreciative of this important equipment donation as it is a piece of equipment that practically gets used every day in the field by deputies enforcing various alcohol related laws to include the operation of motor vehicles while impaired or intoxicated and will certainly get used frequently.”
The men and women of the St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office thank the Nam Knights for their consideration for donating this piece of equipment to the agency.
