Texas to fund better body armor for police

More than $350,000 dollars for 399 rifle resistant, body armor vests are headed to law enforcement agencies in the Brazos Valley.

According to a webpage provided by the Governor's Office, the Brazos County Sheriff's Office will receive 130 vests, a $119,080 value, while College Station Police will receive 27, a $24,732 value. "That is why I'm proud to present these grants to Police Department's across Texas so they can equip their officers with the life-saving equipment they deserve".

"For officers, it can definitely be a boost for us knowing we have the added protection", said Denison Police Department spokesman Lt. Mike Eppler.

"The job of our law enforcement community is becoming more hard as the threats our officers face continue to increase", said Governor Abbott.

Agencies in surrounding counties receiving vests includes the cities of Navasota and Brenham, along with Grimes, Burleson, Milam, and Leon counties.
