Joie Ketcham with the AACP said they are proud to participate in the Bullet Proof Vest Partnership (BVP). "This is a unique Department of Justice initiative designed to provide this critical resource to state and local law enforcement agencies," Ketcham said.
According to a press release, the AACP is a non-profit organization of police chiefs and executives from all over the state who recognize the importance of having proven, effective leaders in law enforcement. It continually works toward enhancing the knowledge and skills of police executives so that they can effectively meet the growing demand of providing the best law enforcement available today.
The Cherokee Village Police Department officers are required to wear their vests while on the job, this is something the former Police Chief Jason French implemented and has remained policy under Chief Crook.
