Local Police Department Needs New Vests
EL DORADO --The El Dorado Police Department went before City Council for roughly $8900.00, to help purchase new police vests.
They recently hired 10 new officers and need vests for them, as well as, 6 others.
The department says these vests are only useful for 5 years.
After that, they start to get discolored and wear away.
Capitan Kevin Holt says these vests are a vital.
Holt says, "They're each individually fitted to the individual officer, based on whether or not it's a male or a female vest, their height, weight, and where it would actually fit them comfortably."
All 8 city council members voted in favor of funding the vests.
