If you or your department are looking for a great way to dispose of expired bullet resistant vests this project is well worth a look.  Also if you know of any officer in need of a vest then this project is also the place to find that.  Please go to for more information on the project or find them on face book.  If you have specific questions contact Chief Clint Reck of the Muscle Shoals Alabama Police Department at

I spoke with Chief Reck and have started a drive to donate all expired vests that we have on hand.  To date they have delivered over 10,000 vests to officers in need.
