OGDEN — An Ogden church has donated funds to equip police officers with bulletproof vests.

Ogden Police Lt. Danielle Croyle said a Washington Heights Church recently donated $10,700 to the Police Benevolent Association, enough to pay for 79 outer-vests capable of stopping high-caliber weapons, according to the Standard-Examiner.

Pastor Jimi Pitts says the church also raised $4,000 to equip all Ogden officers with tourniquet kits. He says the police donations are among a series of projects the church undertook this year to show the community it cares.

The church also recently fed Ogden and South Ogden firefighters for a week, purchased Christmas gifts for students at the Weber Basin Job Corps Center and packed meals for 2,800 people in the Philippines.
