Reaseheath College has been donated a sample bulletproof vest from SafeGuard Clothing – a leading international manufacturer and distributor of body armour.

The vest was donated to offer our public services students the opportunity to experience the latest advances in bulletproof equipment as they complete the practical aspects of their course. The vest will provide a useful tool to demonstrate to students the types of equipment they can expect to be working with later in their careers.

Greg Houghton, Programme Leader for Public Services said: “We’re always looking for innovative ways for our students to learn, so were delighted to receive the sample vest. It is a great resource for the department and will be used this for role-play exercises and detailed technical analysis in the classroom.”

SafeGuard Clothing is a worldwide manufacturer and distributor of body armour and is involved in research and development for new materials to enhance the wearability of protective body armour for front line services.

Tom Bowman from Safeguard explains: “Samples of our bullet proof vests provide a first-hand look at items many people will otherwise not get their hands on, and understanding how these vests work before they are needed is a tremendous advantage.”
