Officer Joel Bravo

Bryan Police Department Bryan TX Saves Club

On December 22, 2016, Officer Joel Bravo responded to an armed robbery call and began canvassing the area for the suspects. As another officer began a foot pursuit with one of the suspects, Officer Bravo drove in their direction. Once he turned a corner, one of the suspects opened fire and shot through the windshield of his patrol car.

Officer Bravo was hit directly over his heart with a .45 ACP round but was able to communicate his location to dispatch as he took up a position around his patrol car.

Officer Bravo was transported to the hospital where they discovered that his ABA® HP 01 Level II armor stopped the .45 ACP round. He was treated, released and has returned to full duty.

We welcome Officer Joel Bravo, SAVE #1970, to The Safariland Group SAVES CLUB®.
