Police grant for bulletproof vests gets Derry council’s support
Town councilors voted last week to accept the personal body armor funding of $2,762.50 that will pay for half the cost of 13 vests. Derry Police Chief Ed Garone said every patrolman in Derry is required to wear a vest and that he also occasionally wears one.
“So, anticipating our needs over the next several years, we were able to predict the number of replacement vests we will need to purchase, Feole said. “The grant authorizes reimbursement by the U.S. Department of Justice for costs up to 50 percent of the purchase price.”
The award may be used for National Institute of Justice compliant armored vests.
The department also recently received an award for the purchase of portable radios from the state. Feole said the radios will be used to replace existing radios.
