13th March 2020

A leading suppliers of protection equipment to many military, police and security companies around the world has donated an item of safety wear to aid students training for a career in the uniformed public services.

Safeguard Clothing supplied a bullet proof vest to The City of Liverpool College to provide hands-on experience for students following Level 2 and 3 Uniformed Public Services programmes.

As part of their collaboration with the college, Safeguard Clothing also provides expert guidance around industry information on the equipment trainees might use later on in their career.

Chris Laios speaking on behalf of Safeguard Clothing, said: “Providing samples of our bulletproof vests give students a unique advantage later in their careers, and helps them understand how protective clothing works against weapons such as knives and guns.”

Tutor on the public services course, Alex Martin, said: “We are grateful to Safeguard Clothing for their kind donation. The vest will be a useful teaching aid for our level 2 and 3 Uniformed Public Services students, to enhance the quality of our programme through vital role play around the dangers they could face in their career.”

Safeguard Clothing is a worldwide manufacturer and distributer of body armour.  It is also involved in research and development of new materials to enhance the wearability of protective body armour for front line services.
