Utah County Sheriff's Office Receives Donation Of 14 Kevlar Vest Trauma Plates


Posted On : 2/3/2020 11:25:10 AM

Blue Line Ladies, with Pilmer PR in Pleasant Grove, donated 14 Kevlar vest trauma plates to the Utah County Sheriff's Office. These will supplement the protection of vests worn by patrol Deputies, providing an extra level of protection.


*** PRESS RELEASE February 4, 2020 ***

On January 29, 2020, Lydia Hebdon (Woman in picture), President and Executive Director of Blue Line Ladies, and John Pilmer (Far right in picture), founder and CEO of PilmerPR, donated 14 ballistic trauma plates to the Utah County Sheriff's Office.  These trauma plates are designed to supplement the soft body armor worn by most law enforcement officers.  Typical kevlar body armor is flexible and is designed to protect the Deputy or Officer by stopping most handgun ammunition.  This "armor" is "soft", allowing the wearer to still have good range of motion and some level of comfort.  The donated trauma plates provide an extra measure of protection and are designed to stop many different types of rifle ammunition in addition to the protection provided the kevlar body armor.

Blue Line Ladies is a nonprofit organization in Weber County established by wives of Law Enforcement Officers whose mission is to help provide protective gear, training, and awareness to issues and challenges faced by Police Officers in their work.

PilmerPR is a public relations and marketing firm in Pleasant Grove, Utah.  In this case PilmerPR CEO, John Pilmer, partnered with Blue Line Ladies to support their effort to raise funds to buy body armor trauma plates for law enforcement agencies whose budgets have not allowed them to purchase this equipment for all of their Officers or Deputies.
