Sheriff’s office receives large donation

Marquette County Sheriff Greg Zyburt is shown accepting a donation of $30,000 from Michael Neiger, president of Michigan Backcountry Search and Rescue (MibSAR). This donation will be used for the purchase of a Matrice 300 RTK Drone. This drone will literally expand the horizon in helping Marquette County Search and Rescue during fire, flooding, search and rescue and recovery. The drone will be named ART to honor Michael’s father Art Neiger who was a 40-year veteran of the Coast Guard Auxiliary in Marquette. He was also a Boy Scout Leader, a professor and advisor at Northern Michigan University and helped to set up NMU’s Police Academy. ART is also an acronym for Aerial Response Team. The drone will be equipped with state of the art software technology, including infrared spotlights and advanced camera technology. (Submitted photo)
