The Kentucky League of Cities Insurance Services recently awarded the City of Simpsonville a $3,000 grant that the city will use to buy Tasers for its police force.

The city will also update the police policies and procedures manual to better protect the public, Simpsonville Mayor Steve Eden said in a press release.

"We are committed to upgrading our police department in order to offer the best protection to our citizens," Eden said. "This grant along with our recent addition of a fourth officer is a positive step in providing those services."

Simpsonville city officials said the city commission hopes to someday have enough officers to provide full-time police coverage to residents.
