Ada and Forest Police Departments Receive Grants to Purchase Body Armor

Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost has awarded more than $345,000 in grants to more than 60 local police departments around the state over the last three months to purchase body armor vests for their officers. 

 

Included in that, the Ada Police Department received just under $3900 and the Forest Police Department received a $4800 grant.

 

The Ohio Law Enforcement Body Armor Program is administered by the Ohio Attorney General’s Office, with funding provided by the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation (BWC) as part of its Safety Intervention Grant Program.
