A local sandwich maker is donating to North Charleston police department equipment valued at more than $3,500 to be used to improve traffic safety.
The Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation will award the stealth stat system to police during a ceremony at 3:30 p.m. Monday at the North Charleston Firehouse Subs location.
The stealth stat system will aid police conducting traffic studies. With the device, officers will be able to record vehicle speeds at different times of the day to determine which areas are most in need of enforcement, a spokesman for the restaurant said.
Since 2005, the Safety Foundation has donated more than $525,000 to enhance public safety in South Carolina, according to Firehouse Subs.
“Our local heroes need to be prepared at a moment’s notice to protect and save lives,” said Kevin Hatton, franchisee of the North Charleston Firehouse Subs restaurant. “Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation, with the support of our restaurants, is dedicated to equip, educate, and fund first responders,” he said.
