The National Sheriffs’ Association (NSA) also announced the formation of an Industry Action Group to assist sheriffs' offices and first responders as they navigate the complex COVID-19 pandemic response across the nation.

Many corporate and industry partners have asked how they can help. Sheriffs have a desperate need for N95 masks, disposable gowns, eye protection, disinfecting products, including hand sanitizer other items, to protect staff, inmates and citizens,” NSA's Jonathan Thompson, CEO and executive director said. “Our deputies are working long hours, running directly into harm’s way to assist vulnerable citizens. They protect us, so we’re working tirelessly to protect them.”
