Elkins Police Chief Travis Bennett said the funds will go to support the department’s efforts to fight drugs.

“We’re out there every day, trying to stop these substances from coming into our city and being distributed in our city. Our guys work hard all the time and it’s at the top of our priority list,” said Bennett.

Bennett added that donation is also appreciated as a sign that the Elkins community is behind the police department.
