Public Services Students at North Warwickshire and South Leicestershire College have received a generous donation from SafeGuard – a tactical body armour and safety equipment distributor.
Safeguard, whose UK branch is located in Leeds, has committed to forming partnerships with local and regional colleges in an attempt to help them enhance their Public Services courses. Their donation of one of their industry-leading bullet proof vest will be used to educate students on the working mechanics behind the design and structure of protective materials of the latest generation.
“We are pleased to be working with North Warwickshire and South Leicestershire College. The donation of body armour intends to facilitate the education of future Public Service recruits” says SafeGuard Clothing Communications Manager Thomas Bowman.
“Known for its strong commitment to industry standards and innovative development, the company is taking the next step in its effort to promote security by assisting local colleges in development of courses to the students’ best interests. This donation is the latest in a series stretching back more than several years since SafeGuard Clothing started collaborating with local colleges to help train the next generation of Public and Uniformed Services operatives.”
Carl Pickering, Public Services Lecturer at the College said: “Donations such as these are greatly beneficial to our students. They provide access to the field’s best practices as well as proven expertise and technology advancement to enhance their learning experience. SafeGuard’s bulletproof vest will be used for role play and technical analysis. It will allow us to demonstrate the working mechanics behind staying safe in the line of work that involves daily risks.”
