LARM Armor Program
Law enforcement officers are apt to encounter dangerous individuals in the line of duty so it's of vital importance that they take the proper safety precautions including wearing a bullet proof vest.
The League Association of Risk Management (LARM) is now offering funds towards the purchase of a bullet proof vest for LARM member police departments. The LARM Armor program will provide $700 towards an approved vest for qualifying members.
"We understand that many communities do not have the resources to pay for a bullet proof vest for their officers. We want to help keep the officers safe by providing them with assistance for a vest," said Dave Bos, LARM Loss Control Manager.
A requirement of being awarded funds for this program would be that the LARM member police department be required to show they have in place a “mandatory wear” policy for their patrol officers. LARM has a model policy available for members here.
The application below must be submitted and approved before the bullet proof vest can be purchased. A mandatory wear policy must be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org prior to approval. Once approved, the member can purchase a vest and submit a receipt to LARM for reimbursement for up to $700 for its purchase.
Deadline for submitting the LARM Armor application is September 15, 2020.
