Wichita Co. Sheriff's Office Getting More Bullet Proof Vests

More bulletproof vests are coming to the Wichita County Sheriff's Office.

In a special session this morning Wichita County Commissioners approved the new gear.
Half of the nearly $30,000 will be paid for by a grant from "Bulletproof Vest Partnership".
The rest will come from the Wichita County Sheriff's Office Forfeiture Fund.

Commissioners also approved the next step in realigning the county jail staff to help ready the jail for new jailers.
