MADISON, AL (WAFF) -

On Monday, the Madison City Council formally accepted the donation of more than $9,000 of new communications head gear for the city's SWAT unit.

The American Society for Industrial Security (ASIS) donated the gear. The society works to support law enforcement across the Valley and the world.

Sgt. Nic McRae is the SWAT commander for Madison and said the donation is a makes the SWAT communication "three dimensional."

"So we can not only talk with each other over the radio, with dispatch and other SWAT team members on the other side of buildings, but it's also a noise-decibel reducer," he said.

ASIS North Alabama Chapter Chairman James Clyburn said he's lived in the valley all his life.

"It's an honor to be in this position to be able to give back to the people who put their lives on the line for us," he said.

McRae said the SWAT team is always looking for donations, and reaching out to ASIS is a good way to help.
