PRESS RELEASE OKLAHOMA BUREAU OF NARCOTICS AND DANGEROUS DRUGS CONTROL FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: November 19, 2010 CONTACT: OBNDD SPOKESMAN MARK WOODWARD, (405) 521-2885 OR (800) 522-8031 NARCOTICS BUREAU DONATES VESTS TO DEPARTMENTS IN NEED The Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics today is announcing the donation of seventy (70) bullet-proof vests to fellow law enforcement agencies. OBN Spokesman Mark Woodward says these vests are no longer in service by OBN Agents, but can benefit other officers and agents in need. “There are literally thousands of law enforcement professionals in the United States and around the world working in dangerous environments everyday without ballistic vest to protect them. We have replaced all of our expired vests and we’re pleased to see these surplus vests will still benefit agencies and departments that don’t have the financial resources to provide this protection to their officers.” ---Mark Woodward, OBN Spokesman OBN Director Darrell Weaver says the donation is part of his agency’s mission to assist brothers and sisters in law enforcement. “We have a social responsibility to seek ways in which to help our society; therefore, we are initiating the sowing and reaping principal for the good. I believe these are good seeds we are sowing for law enforcement and if we save one life in the pursuit of a safer society then it will be worth it.” ---OBN Director Darrell Weaver Woodward says while the manufacturer warranty may be expired, often the vest will still effectively protect those that do not have one. OBN will be donating the seventy surplus vests to The Armor of God Project. The Armor of God Project is an outreach of the Ten-Four Ministries, a non-profit ministry dedicated to reaching the first responder community for the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It’s an organization that began in 2009 providing recycled ballistic vests to officers that need them. To date, The Armor of God Project has issued more than 1,500 used vests to law enforcement officers, worldwide.
