CHEYENNE — Wyoming law enforcement officers, including the Rock Springs Police Department, were recently recognized for donating used equipment to the Ukrainian people.

Coordinated by the Wyoming Office of Homeland Security, the statewide effort involved outreach to multiple agencies across the state. The effort resulted in the donation of more than 200 interior and exterior ballistic vests; panels that can be used to assemble an additional 80 vests; rifle plates for the vests; helmets and boots. In addition, six pallets of medical-grade wipes were donated.
