CORVALLIS, Ore. — The Corvallis Police Department will be getting some new protective gear.

The department has received a $6,901 grant from the federal Bureau of Justice Assistance that will allow it to purchase 17 new bullet-proof vests.

The new gear will help the department keep up with its replacement schedule, which is built on the fact that vests have a shelf life of five years, said Chief Jon Sassaman.
