Venture Ballistic Composites announces the sale and delivery of (30) First Responder #1 Ballistic Shields to the Haines City Police for the Department`s Patrol Div.
These 3a shields are specifically designed for Patrol Officers, and with this sale brings the number of VBC First Responder Shields in Polk County Fl. to 760 shields.
Staff is recommending the City Commission approve the purchase of thirty (30) ballistic shields for use by patrol officers. The cost associated with this request is $22,500.00 and shall be purchased through available funds in the Police Department forfeiture account.
Staff recently reviewed protective equipment that the agency is currently issuing to each patrol officer. This review identified the need for ballistic shields, as our standard issue at this time is only a bullet proof vest, which are sometimes not enough protection for the task at hand. Therefore, in an effort to provide additional protection for all patrol officers, in an active shooter situation or in searches for violent criminals, Staff is recommending the purchase and use of ballistic shields with the capabilities of providing improved protection for the individual officer in all situations.
