On heels of a Calif. shooting, Willmar police officers receive new body armor

Email

WILLMAR -- A defective ballistic vest that failed to protect a California police officer in 2003 has resulted in new body armor for most of the Willmar police officers.

The new vests arrived this week.

The vests sell for about $700 each but the shipment of 22 vests didn't cost the city a penny.
