Officer Draper is going to have an exciting story to tell his grandchildren about his police days and his Second Chance® vest. Draper was one of a dozen police officers called into a barricaded gunman situation. Plans called for the use of teargas and fire hose to disable the gunman. Draper’s job was manning the hose. Plans went away when the hose pressure failed and Draper stood face-to-face with 16ga. slug screaming at Draper'” upper abdomen. The officer was knocked down by the impact and dragged to safety by his fellow officers while a volley of shots rang out to bring down the assailant.
We welcome Officer Steve Draper, SAVE #340, to The Safariland Group SAVES CLUB®.
