The Grand Prairie Police Department is getting new gear to keep officers safe in dangerous situations.
A Colorado-based non-profit is donating 50 armored vests and ballistic helmets to the department.
The faith-based group is called Shield 616 and operates to give peace officers and first responders rifle-rated protections at no cost.
The group donated the gear at Gateway Church's Grand Prairie campus.
The donation is valued at about $100,000.
