“Spotlight on Safety” is a themed, multidimensional outreach plan designed to promote officer safety awareness and wellness as directly related to officer safety. Spotlight on Safety provides safety-related topics and offers resources associated with an identified theme. Each theme includes digital aids, potentially including downloadable and printable posters and links to related articles, publications, Webinars, podcasts, and online trainings. To subscribe to receive notifications on recently published digital aids, follow VALOR on Facebook and Twitter, and look for the hashtag #SpotlightOnSafety.
The current Spotlight on Safety theme is "Vest Wear."
Body armor is one of the most important investments that you and your agency will ever make in helping protect you. Bullet-resistant vests have saved the lives of more than 3,100 Officers.1 They are strong enough to absorb bullets and also can protect you during physical confrontations or in the event that you are involved in a traffic accident. For your vest to be effective, the tough exterior requires proper fit and maintenance.
