VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) - Friday, folks from the Valdosta Home Depot dropped off a gift to the Valdosta Police Department.

The store donated eight range guard hearing protectors, which are headsets officers can wear while practicing at the firing range.

Home Depot store manager, Peter Layne, said it's important to give back to the men and women who help protect him every day.

"When I get an alarm call at 2 o'clock in the morning, these are the guys that walk through my store with me," said Layne, "It's just a way to say we appreciate what they do day in and day out."

Each headset costs $45.
