Good Samaritan Foundation donates AEDs to local law enforcement

The Good Samaritan Foundation recently gave 16 AED devices to local police departments. The AED’s were presented to representatives from the Knox County Sheriff’s Department, Vincennes Police Department and Vincennes University Police Department. AED’s, Automated External Defibrillators, are used to help those experiencing sudden cardiac arrest. The medical device can analyze the heart’s rhythm and, if necessary, deliver an electrical shock to help re-establish an effective heart rhythm. All 16 AED devices, valued at more than $20,000, were split equally between the departments. Pictured from left are Knox County Sheriff Doug Vantlin, GSH chief administration officer Matt Schuckman, Robert Dunham, chief of the Vincennes Police Department, GSH chief nursing officer Rachel Spalding, Gary Hackney, foundation director and Adam Daugherty, chief of the VU Police Department. Good Samaritan Foundation has a matching grant program for any nonprofit organization in need of AED devices. Those who have any questions or would like more information can call Nicole Coomer at 812-885-3192 or send her an email at
