Bell County law enforcement is getting several safety upgrades.

The 100 Club of Central Texas — a non-profit organization that provides assistance to families of first responders who have been killed or critically injured in the line of duty — announced Monday that it would donate 16 ballistic vests to the Sheriff’s Department on Tuesday.

“The club offers a ballistic vest grant for law enforcement departments within our six-county area as part of our mission to support first responders,” said Eleysa Richards, assistant director of the 100 Club of Central Texas.

On top of that, the Commissioners Court — in a unanimous decision on Monday — approved a five-year contract for body cameras and in-car cameras for the offices of Precinct 2 Constable Rolly Correa and Precinct 4 Constable Edd Melton.

The contract — which is with Axon, a law enforcement technology and weapons manufacturer based in Scottsdale, Arizona — will cost $27,809 over the next half decade.

Melton said the purchase was already in the 2019 fiscal year budget.

The cost of the contract includes the equipment, data storage, warranty and replacement of the devices.

Previously in October, the commissioners approved a similar contract with Axon for 15 body cameras for Melton’s office. That contract cost $73,306, and was already in the constable’s budget.
