Save No.

Officer Tom Maloney

Springfield Police Department Springfield OR Saves Club

As in all “saves” from high power rifle fire on “soft” body armor we must qualify the circumstances under which this incident occurred. Officer Maloney stopped a vehicle on a tail light violation. Before Maloney could react, the assailant exited his vehicle with a .30-06 rifle, firing at the officer. A bullet struck the windshield on the police unit, causing the bullet to disintegrate. A large part of the lead bullet struck Officer Maloney in the chest only to be stopped by his Second Chance® vest. Maloney returned fire, hitting his assailant in the right knee, right elbow, right shoulder and right chest area.

We welcome Officer Tom Maloney, SAVE #177, to The Safariland Group SAVES CLUB®.
