ELWOOD, Ind. — The Elwood Board of Works and Public Safety approved a request by Chief Jason Brizendine to equip police vehicles with bullet-resistant windshields.
Chief Brizendine said all 17 patrol vehicles in Elwood will receive the new windshields.
The chief said each windshield will cost up to $2,200.
Dana Safety Supply will supply the windshields.
The announcement came nearly three weeks after Elwood Police Officer Noah Shahnavaz was shot and killed during a traffic stop.
