Daphne PD used vests go to help other police

The warranties on the bulletproof vests used by the Daphne Police Department expire every five years, but Daphne Police Chief David Carpenter said the used vests will continue to protect officers in the line of duty.

On Wednesday, the Daphne and Mobile police departments sent 34 expired vests to Muscle Shoals, where they will be refurbished, organized by size and sent nationwide and abroad.

The donation is part of the Armor of God Project, a program that sends used bulletproof vests to law enforcement agencies that cannot afford them
