“Officer safety is a top priority for SDPD. Thank you for helping us provide protective vests for our men and women in blue.”— San Diego Police Foundation


As the Chief’s top equipment priority for this year, “plate carriers” also known as rifle-proof vests, are worn over an officer’s soft body armor, adding a layer of protection from high caliber rounds. Unfortunately, not all SDPD’s patrol officers have this piece of safety equipment. At $878 each, your lifesaving gift will fund one (1) “plate carrier” for a SDPD patrol officer. Become a lifeSAVER today!
