Kershaw County Council unanimously passed a resolution during its Feb. 28 meeting supporting the Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office’s (KCSO) application for a South Carolina Dept. of Justice (SCDOJ) Justice Assistance Grant to buy bullet proof vests for KCSO deputies The grant requires no match at the county level, County Administrator Vic Carpenter said. “It doesn’t cost us anything; all they have to do is spend the money on bullet proof vests,” Carpenter said. Sheriff Jim Matthews noted that body armor is designed for each individual deputy and has a useful lifespan of about five years.
