During the COVID-19 pandemic, the Utah Attorney General’s Office has partnered with a number of local businesses to collect and distribute personal protective equipment (PPE) to rescue and law enforcement agencies who were running out.
Together, PPE was secured and distributed statewide when PPE was not readily available to first responders. There was a huge need based on the scarcity of PPE and the desire to help keep law enforcement agencies and other first responders safe.
So far, PPE has been delivered to over 100 law enforcement agencies and Children’s Justice Centers statewide. This has included:
- 14,300 N95 masks
- 500 KN90 masks
- 1,200 bottles of hand sanitizer
- 4,100 gloves
Over 200 hours and nearly 10,000 miles have been driven by Attorney General’s Office agents delivering PPE statewide.
