On Thursday morning The Floyd County Police Department gathered together with the Floyd County Sheriff’s Office, The Brotherhood of Firefighters, The Floyd County Bomb Squad, and The Rome-Floyd Litter and Blight Task Force for a special community service project….
The goal of this project was to provide dignity to an elderly man as he battles health complications due to cancer that is in an aggressive stage.
