We have entered into an agreement with a reputable law enforcement equipment dealer to ensure that we get the best price on each vest we supply. Consequently, we will order vests on the grantee's behalf and the distributor will invoice the Foundation after shipping the vest(s) to the grantee agency. The body armor that we provide is NIJ compliant and from a nationally known and reputable manufacturer.
