The Statesville Police Department recently donated radios to Mitchell Community College’s Security Department.

SPD Chief Joe Barone approached Mitchell Security Director David Heinmiller with the idea of donating surplus SPD radio equipment to the Mitchell Community College Security Department. The radio equipment had been in storage since SPD upgraded to new frequencies and new equipment.

According to Heinmiller, the equipment will improve his department’s communications around Mitchell's campuses in Statesville and Mooresville. Following the approval of the Statesville City Council, the radios were accepted by Mitchell Community College President Dr. Tim Brewer.
