Protect the Protector
Every officer who goes to work protecting the citizens of this great country should have access to a vest!
Over 200,000 deputy sheriffs and police officers will go to work in the United States, in 2015, without a ballistic vest or will wear one that is up to 20 years old! The average life span of a vest is 5 years.
- A law enforcement officer dies every 53 hours in the line of duty.
- 2014 saw a 56% increase in law enforcement officers shot and killed by gunfire.
- 2014 was the fifth straight year that ambush attacks on law enforcement officers were the number one cause of felonious fatalities.
