Alexandria, VA – The National Sheriffs’ Association President Sheriff John Layton (Marion County, IN) released the following statement concerning the President signing legislation that will permanently reauthorize the program that buys bulletproof vests for law enforcement.

“Our nation’s deputies and officers now have the permanent commitment of its government to ensure they have critical lifesaving equipment.  The President and Congress have come together to protect our men and women that put themselves in harm’s way every day. This is a landmark moment for law enforcement but more remains to be achieved and America’s sheriffs stand ready to assist.”
