          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.
