"These vests, worn by our deputies, are replaced by grant funding every 5 years," the sheriff's office said. "They are in good condition and in our testing, retain their level of protection many years beyond. We have kept this gear for years in case it is needed. We are proud to provide this help on behalf of the people of Fillmore County."

Sheriff DeGeorge teamed up with Steele County Sheriff Lon Thiele for this mission on behalf of the two agencies.
