Deputies with Uintah County Sheriff’s Office have a new look that serves an important purpose. The officers now wear new outer carriers for their bullet-resistant vests. “We understand they may look more ‘tactical’ to some,” shares the Sheriff’s Office. “That is not why we chose these carriers nor is it their primary purpose. Their primary purpose is to take some of the weight of the equipment deputies carry off their hips and distribute it to their shoulders to prevent long-term injuries.”
