Vest-A-Cop was formed following the shooting of Ridley Park Police Officer Marc Hanly on
August 30th, 2015. His life was saved due to the bullet proof vest he was wearing that evening. At that time, we learned that many municipalities in Delaware County did not provide vests for their officers or first responders. In an effort to insure that all first responders are adequately equipped with the life-saving tools necessary, Vest-A-Cop was formed to help raise funds to purchase vests for those who do not have one or cannot afford one. In addition, we raise funds for active shooter vests for all departments in Delaware County and are providing tourniquets and training to all departments in Delaware County. We are offering First Responder Safety Grants as well.
Vest-A-Cop will be hosting many fundraising events throughout the year to raise funds necessary to purchase vests and other life-saving equipment.
If you have any questions, or need further information, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Plans are presently underway for our Annual Golf Outing on June 8, 2020. Check back soon for additional details.
