Staff Report

FORT STOCKTON - A bulletproof vest can mean the difference between life and death for a police officer. But those vests are hard to come by at the Fort Stockton Police Department.

For the first time in a while, the department is becoming fully staffed but they're lacking the resources.

We're told four new officers need vests before they can patrol the streets but more could be needed after regular checks of all officers' vests are made.

If you'd like to sponsor a vest, you can contact the Fort Stockton Police Department at (432) 336-4600.
