Special to the Tribune


The 100 Club of Arizona, a nonprofit public safety support organization, on Thursday presented the Prescott Valley Police Department with a check for $5,000 to buy 13 officers advanced ballistic body armor.

The armor provides protection beyond the Kevlar vests worn on a daily basis by officers, PVPD spokesman Sgt. Brandon Bonney said.

"During incidents such as an active shooter, the lethality for anyone involved can be very high," he said.

"This type of event prompts a different response from law enforcement where greater risks may be taken to protect the public."

Bonney praised the 100 Club.

"The 100 Club of Arizona is a vital partner to public safety. Their efforts have had, and will continue to have, a profound positive impact on law enforcement," he said.
