Free Safety Vest Program
COTSO has always been about helping security officers and their families after a tragedy, but the security industry itself is about prevention. In order to prevent security officers from injury or death while on duty, COSTO has begun to implement new programs to train, advise and equip security officers. One of our new initiatives is this safety vest program. We believe if we can save the life of just one officer, then the program will be a great success!
