Blood Draw Kits
A Wyoming Department of Health Chemical Testing budget reduction in the fall of 2010 removed the provision of blood test kits. This would become a financial burden to departments who had not budgeted for the purchase of kits that historically had been provided free of charge. WASCOP approached WYDOT seeking funding to purchase and disseminate blood draw kits to agencies. WASCOP secured an additional $14,250 Highway Safety Grant to cover this cost. Each kit cost $10 mailed to the agency. In the current fiscal year we received another $14,250 grant to fund the provision of kits to all law enforcement agencies. This puts no additional burden on the agency. WASCOP has prepaid for these kits through Chemical Testing and all the agency does is continue to request the kits as needed with no cost to the agency.
