Tarkett Presents Dalton Police with New Ballistic Shield
Dalton, GA, September 21, 2023-The Tarkett manufacturing team in Dalton, Georgia recently partnered with the Dalton Police Department (DPD) to help improve the security of its facilities. The DPD joined meetings with all Tarkett manufacturing employees to discuss ways to be better prepared for emergency situations.
After the DPD’s visit with Tarkett’s team in July, Tracy Scott, senior vice president of operations for Tarkett North America, began exploring ways Tarkett could give back. It was decided that the company would donate a new ballistic shield to the DPD.
Tarkett presented the new shield to DPD officers on September 19.
