CCPD Officers Presented with New Protective Gloves
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -
The Corpus Christi Police Department have added another piece of equipment to their arsenal of crime fighting tools -- gloves.
Some say gloves are just as important as their Kevlar vests. Their new TurtleSkin Alpha Protective Gloves protect officers hands when patting down suspects out in the field.
On Friday, thanks to the Corpus Christi Crime Control and Prevention District and the Coastal Bend Wellness Foundation, 475 officers were presented with the new specialized protective gloves. They will protect officers from cutting their hands, as well as preventing punctures from sharp objects like hypodermic needles.
The donation of the gloves saved the police department close to $23,000.
