SNOW HILL, Md. (AP) — The Worcester County Commissioners now have bulletproof clipboards.

George Tunis, CEO of Hardwire LLC in Pocomoke City, which manufactures the clipboards, handed out the clipboards to the commissioners at a meeting on Tuesday.

The county bought 61 clipboards and 33 shields. The shields will be distributed to workers in the county's main government office building, courthouses and state's attorney's office.

The Daily Times of Salisbury reports that the county paid $12,000 for the clipboards and shields after a 50 percent discount from Hardwire.
