The Ramsey County Sheriff's Office is helping fellow police officers on the other side of the globe.

They're donating 10 armored vests to a police department in Thailand.

The idea was hatched when a Thai police officer visiting the Twin Cities said that his colleagues have to pay for their own protective vests.

DHL is covering the shipping costs to get the vests overseas.
