New ballistic vests arrive at the Coffeyville Police Department. The vests are worn on the outside of an officer's uniform, allowing them to be removed when an officer is writing up reports at the station. They can also be put back on quickly if an officer is called out. The vests are made by Point Blank Enterprises.
The vests also reduce back strain by spreading the 25 pounds of police equipment worn by an officer across the upper body rather than having to use the older, leather gun belt system.
