The Southern University Police Department received a $10,000 grant to upgrade the force’s ballistic vests.
The funds were provided through a grant contribution for Capital Area Law Enforcement. This is through a joint venture with the Exxon Mobil Foundation and North Baton Rouge Chemical Industry Task Force.
Angel Armor has been chosen as the selected vendor for the project due to its functionality and comfort for the officers as they continue daily operations. The vests will provide an additional level of protection to officers while they protect and serve the campus community.
