LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- An officer shot in the line of duty was given some special recognition, along with a new bullet-resistant vest on Monday.

Point Blank Enterprises awarded Officer Kyle Carroll a new vest and plaque this morning.

Police say Jacquan Crowley shot Carroll in June in the Russell neighborhood. Carroll was wearing a bullet-resistant vest when he was shot.

Crowley was later arrested in Florida.

Point Blank say its main goal is to help officers return to the streets safely after a shooting.

"It's a great feeling that we have, you know, that we're out here making a difference and saving somebody's life so they can go home to their family," said Hoyt Schmidt, senior vice president of Point Blank Enterprises.

Point Blank says it has seen an increased need to replace bullet-resistant vests in the past few years. The senior vice president thinks it's because of the rise in crime and more officers wearing vests.
