PASSAIC COUNTY, N.J. — Dozens of police departments in Bergen and Passaic counties will share more than $412,000 in state grants to purchase bulletproof vests, state officials announced Tuesday.

The money is part of $3.6 million in grants from the New Jersey Division of Criminal Justice Body Armor Replacement Fund. It was established by legislation in 1998 and is funded through a $1 surcharge on traffic tickets and forfeitures of bail.
