Hardin County receives upgrade to drone system

Hardin County Sheriff’s Office Sgt Travis Cook, Lincoln Trail Area Development District Executive Director Daniel London and Hardin County Sheriff John Ward pose with equipment paid for through a grant received by the district for the office’s drone.

Seven counties now have more capabilities to respond to emergency situations with the granting of drones or drone equipment from the Lincoln Trail Area Development District.

The agency received grant funding through the CARES Act to purchase seven aerial drones for each county to include Breckinridge, Grayson, LaRue, Marion, Meade, Nelson, and Washington in the Lincoln Trail Region, according to a news release from the organization.
