REPLACEMENT VESTS FOR OUR TUCSON OFFICERS
Every day Tucson police officers put their lives on the line to protect you and me. What protects them from a bad guy’s bullet is a vest. You can protect those that are protecting you.

Adopt A Cop…Help the Tucson Police Foundation to purchase replacement protective vests for Tucson Police Department officers. Many officers currently have vests that are old and not guaranteed to protect them. There is no money in the budget to purchase new vests. We are asking Tucson businesses, individuals and community organizations to Adopt A Cop by donating $800 for the purchase of one vest. You can help in a real, tangible way.
The officers receiving the replacement vests will be determined by the age of their current vests and duty areas. Example: A patrol officer with an 8 year old vest would be on the priority list.
Here are some other items with estimated costs:
- Bullet Resistant Vest - $800;
- Auxiliary Weapon Glock (back up weapon) - $500;
- Surefire Shotgun Lighting System - $250;
- Cool Cop Cooling Vest - $250;
- Binoculars and Flashlight - $125 each;
- Extra Handcuffs - $50.
