H-E-B Elevates Sheriff’s Capabilities with DJI Drone Gift
Texas-based grocery store chain H-E-B announced on Wednesday that it will donate a $20,000 DJI drone to the Johnson County Sheriff's Office for International Drone Day.
Sheriff Adam King expressed gratitude for the contribution, saying, “This is a huge boost to our department and will allow for increased coverage during incidents where technology works in tandem with our officers.”
The DJI Matrice M30T drone will reportedly be presented on Saturday at the Chisholm Trail Outdoor Museum in Cleburne.
H-E-B spokesperson Mabrie Jackson highlighted the company's history of supporting the communities it serves. As the chain continues to expand in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, including a new store in Mansfield, Jackson noted,
“We were approached with a need from Johnson County and were happy to answer the call.”
H-E-B anticipates more partnerships like this one as they become part of the community. Law enforcement departments have found drones to be essential for Search and Rescue operations, including locating missing children and elderly individuals, as well as assisting in rescue missions and car chases.
