Hinds Constables Will Get Bulletproof Vests

The Hinds County Board of Supervisors approved a proposal Tuesday to buy five bulletproof vests for county constables.
County Supervisor Kenneth Stokes introduced the motion and says the constables need the vests to protect them, especially now that the state's open carry gun law is in effect.
The law allows anyone 18 years old and older to carry a holstered weapon without a permit.
Stokes says county law-enforcement officers, including the five constables, should have vests and the county should pay for them.
The board approved spending up to $5,000 for the vests. The money will come out of the budget for next year.
