Calpine Corporation donated $2,000 to Freestone County Sheriff’s Office Wednesday, Aug. 29, which Sheriff Jeremy Shipley says the department will use to buy two Tasers. “We have a couple of officers trained,” said Shipley. “We’ll be for sure buying two for those individuals.” Shipley said he would like to have four to six because “it’s important to have another non-lethal option.” Pictured from left are Deputy Devin Mowry, Calpine Plant Manager Ty Pate, Calpine Business Manager John Taylor, and Sheriff Jeremy Shipley.
