With sanitizing products still in high demand, businesses across Michigan are making sure the State Police posts in their communities have access to items that will keep our first responders safe and healthy.
The Mt. Pleasant Sam's Club donated 38 bottles of hand sanitizer - one for every patrol vehicle at the Mt. Pleasant Post - as well as alcohol-based surface wipes, while the Kerr Corporation in Romulus dropped off 10 cases of disinfecting wipes to the Metro South Post.

The Jackson Post received face shields from RCO Engineering. The company shared a photo on LinkedIn saying, "Michigan State Police are always protecting us. It's about time we started to protect them. You guys are rocking those face shields. Thank you for continuing to work and keeping us safe."
Lowe's in Delta Township donated two cases of disinfecting wipes to the Lansing Post.
Wise Men Distillery, Detroit City Distillery, Amway and Haviland all provided hand sanitizer to the Rockford Post while members of the Fifth District also received hand sanitizer from Amway.
