Bedford County Sheriff’s Office Celebrated a Milestone Wednesday

 

 Bedford Co., VA – The Bedford County Sheriff’s Office celebrated a milestone Wednesday.

They held a ceremony to mark the 500th ballistic vest that the sheriff’s office has given to other departments. The Attorney General’s office has funded the program to help law enforcement agencies in Virginia that can’t afford the vests.

The 500th vest went to the Westmoreland County Sheriff’s Office.

“Many police officers die for lack of a ballistic armor and we’ve had many officers saved as a result of ballistic armor,” said Sheriff Mike Brown.

“We’re always looking for ways to make our jobs safe…safety is our number one priority,” said Sgt. Eric Molinares, of the Westmoreland County Sheriff’s Office.

Other vests went out Wednesday to the Town of Amherst Police, Radford City Police and the Albemarle County Sheriff’s Office.
