With ammo in high demand, Nashua police place their order
"The demand is high. We want to make sure that we can get our order in," said Karen Smith, business manager for the Nashua Police Department. "The vendors are very busy."
"Due to the current state of ammunition shortages and excessive backorders, it was determined best to solicit the two firms that have consistently participated over the last decade," said a memo written to Mayor Donnalee Lozeau, chairman of the Finance Committee.
Moriarty explained that bulletproof vests are custom fit for each individual officer, and that they are not reused by policemen.
Both the ammunition and bulletproof vest purchases were approved unanimously by the committee.
