Beltrami County Sheriff's Office donate bulletproof vests and helmets to help the people of Ukraine
April 13, 2022
The Beltrami County Sheriff’s Office in conjunction with the Minnesota Sheriffs' Association, and sheriff offices all over Minnesota have donated bulletproof vests and helmets to help the people of Ukraine. Over 650 bulletproof vests, 55 helmets, and 4 shields were collected by agencies in just a few days. Although the items donated by the Beltrami County Sheriff’s Office have reached the manufacturer’s expiration date and have been replaced at their recommendation, these pieces of equipment are still capable of providing protection and will immediately help the people of Ukraine. The Minnesota Sheriff’s Association has developed a personal contact connected to Ukraine that will ensure the donated items are provided immediately to those in need.
