This year Safariland is celebrating the lives of Sergeant James “Buddy” Brown – SAVE #2026, and Sergeant Seth Kelly – SAVE #2036. These heroes will be at the booth for a special presentation as they are honored for their courage. Listen to their stories of being placed in the line of fire and winning the fight.

  • Sergeant James “Buddy” Brown from the York County Sheriff’s Office was shot by an armed assailant on January 16, 2018. His PROTECH® Tactical Delta™ 4 ballistic helmet stopped the round, allowing him to stay in the fight and take the assailant into custody.
  • Sergeant Seth Kelly was making a DUI arrest in 2017 when a violent struggle resulted in Sergeant Kelly being shot four times. The round that hit his collar bone on the clavicle notch was stopped by his Safariland Summit™ Level II armor, just ¼ inch from the edge of his vest.

Share in the celebration and welcome them as members of The Safariland Group SAVES CLUB.

Throughout the show, Safariland account managers and product category directors will be available to present products and discuss dealer and distributor programs.
