York College’s Department of Campus Safety recently donated used bulletproof vests to those fighting in Ukraine. The request came from the FBI National Academy Class (FBINA), which includes a police officer from Ukraine. The FBINA is organizing the collection of items to be shipped to Ukraine.

“This is probably the third different request for body armor donations I received in the last few weeks, said Ed Bruder ’02, Director of Campus Safety Police. “With the FBI organizing the shipment to Poland, I thought that this request stood the best chance to get to Ukraine.”

Campus Safety donated eight complete sets of body armor, including various accessories, which typically retail at about $1,000 each, according to Bruder. “I hope they keep someone safe,” he said.
