Downtown Stockton Alliance has raised money from community donations to purchase comfort vests for the bicycle Police officers patrolling Downtown Stockton. The vests were presented to the officers in December 2015.
The MAXX-DRI UCV 2.0 comfort vest was originally designed for officers working in extreme weather conditions. It maximizes airflow and improves weight-distribution of ballistic vest, making it feel less heavy on the body. Because it is light weight and provides an additional cushioning and space between skin and body armor, it reduces possibility of dehydration, feeling of fatigue, and strain on shoulders and neck.
