The fit of a bullet resistant vest is critical. When a St. Cloud Police Officer serving in Kuwait needed a handful of smaller vests to properly protect some of the women serving with her, she put the call out at home.

Sarah Gorman is Vice President of the Minnesota Association of Women Police. 

She says she was happy to help a fellow law enforcement officer, "We put out a call for anyone willing to donate a vest."

As word spread, the vests started to arrive, according to Gorman, "Right now I’m standing in front of seven vests... the St. Cloud police department will be sending them over as soon as they have a shipment big enough... and my guess is i think this will be a great start."
