Belmont Police Officers Gifted Premier Body Armor Vests

July 29, 2016

Belmont police officers received a special donation Friday.

Five Premier Durus 8000 complete body armor systems were donated to the department by local businessman Andy Warlick. The department had planned on buying the extra protection vests for their officers but didn’t have the funds for them.

Each vest costs $400, weighs 15 pounds and are meant to be worn on the outside of their gear during an active shooter call. They were manufactured locally at Premier Body Armor in Kings Mountain.
