Members of the Calvert County Sheriff’s Office now have new bullet-resistant vests and carriers, thanks to a donation from the Old Line Chapter of the Nam Knights of America.
The chapter presented Sheriff Mike Evans (R) with a donation of three ballistic vests and extra vest carriers Dec. 12. The vests, according to a press release, will be worn by individuals such as criminal justice students and future police officers who participate in the sheriff’s office ride-along programs. These bullet-resistant vests will provide protection to civilian riders accompanying law enforcement officers during their daily patrol functions.
The Old Line Chapter of the Nam Knights of America is a motorcycle club comprised of local military and law enforcement located in Chesapeake Beach. For the past five years, this club has routinely donated equipment to the sheriff’s office, the release states.
In the release, Evans called the Nam Knights “good friends” of the sheriff’s office, saying “their annual donations have added to the safety of all Calvert County citizens.”
