Gravette police officers will have even more protection thanks to a kind donation.
Metal Building Supply in Gravette gave the Gravette Police Department a monetary donation to purchase a bullet proof vest, according to a City of Gravette news release.
“This is the 15th year MBS has made a donation for a bullet proof vest,” the news release states.
Each Gravette officer wears a bullet proof vest while on duty, according to the news release.
“Even if the vest never gets used, the material expires every five years and needs replaced,” the news release states.
Gravette Police Chief Charles Skaggs said the Police Department truly appreciates Metal Building Supply’s effort to keep officers safe over the past 15 years.
