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 bulletproof vest.

The League Association of Risk Management (LARM) offers funds towards the purchase of a bulletproof vest for LARM member police departments. The LARM Armor program provides $700 towards an approved vest for qualifying members.

A requirement of being awarded funds for this program is that the LARM member police department be required to show they have in place a mandatory wear policy for their patrol officers. 

Emerson Police Chief Charles Chinn applied for the funds and was recently presented a bulletproof vest from LARM officials.

"We understand that many communities do not have the resources to pay for a bulletproof 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.

Eleven LARM member police departments across Nebraska have applied and will be receiving bulletproof vests as part of the LARM Armor program.
