Our most recent Grant Request from the Juno Beach Police Department was for the purchase of ballistic helmets for our police officers.
Juno Beach police officers are currently equipped with active shooter ballistic vests that help mitigate high powered rifle shots. But surveys and interviews with convicted felons show that cop-killers are aware of that and are now more focused on head-shots. The safety and survival of our officers is crucial to the safety and survival of the entire community.
It’s important therefore that our officers have the equipment they need to keep themselves safe as they fight to keep us safe.
Ballistic helmets complete the “active shooter kits” that are a part of our officers everyday carry and the Foundation is pleased to be able to provide this important piece of equipment.
