Carter School Resource Officers wearing vests that alerts headquarters when deputy is shot or stabbed
JOHNSON CITY PRESS – The Carter County Sheriff’s Office will be first law enforcement agency in the region to use a new technology that detects when a deputy’s ballistic vest is shot or stabbed and sends an alert to the department.
Members of the School Resource Officer Division are now wearing automatic injury detection sensors in their ballistic vests.
