Leading branded work and outdoor footwear provider LaCrosse Footwear has donated over 650 pair of rubber boots to the Police Relief Effort in order to equip law enforcement personnel assisting in the Hurricane Katrina relief efforts.

"Confronting the devastation created by Hurricane Katrina is a responsibility that is shared by all Americans.

"Officers in the impacted areas are in serious need of equipment and support and I would like to thank LaCrosse Footwear for its donation and commitment to the law enforcement community. It is companies like LaCrosse, and the numerous other donors, that make this effort possible," said Sheriff Mike Brown of Bedford County Sheriff's Office, who is organizing the Police Relief Effort. Sheriff Brown is also a member of theBoard of Directors of the National Sheriffs Association.
