Thanks to donations from several local organizations, a ballistic wall has been installed in the lobby of the Jamestown Police Department.

Troy Barber, an engineer with Dawson Doors, designed the wall, while the demolition of the previous wall and installation of the new one with bulletproof glass was completed by D & S Glass.

According to Chief Harry Snellings, the wall is just another step in protecting law enforcement officials.

“I just want to thank all of the organizations and individuals who came together to make this project a reality,” Snellings said.

Funding for the project came from several organizations including, Allied Alarm Services, Inc., Chautauqua Patrons Insurance Company, Lynn Development Group and Shults Auto Group.

In addition, the Chautauqua Region Community Foundation served as a depository for the money secured.
