Wichita Falls Police to get new bulletproof vests

WICHITA FALLS, TX (KAUZ) - The Wichita Falls Police Department is getting 50 new bulletproof vests to replace some of their older ones.

On Tuesday, the city council passed a resolution to apply for a grant that would help pay for the vests.

Police Chief Manuel Borrego said it will, most likely, not provide a lot of funding because cities with a population of under 100,000 people will get a majority of the grant money.

The total cost of the vests will be just over $31,000.
