More stories are emerging of local police departments around the U.S. trying to help Ukrainian military forces as they fight Russia's invasion.
- On Monday, more than 200 pieces of protective equipment including bulletproof vests and helmets, from officers around Fairfield County, Connecticut were shipped to Ukraine.
- Officials said most of it is older gear they're no longer using.
- There is nothing wrong with the vests, but in the U.S., law enforcement regulations require the vests be replaced every 5 years.
- Last week, the Colorado Department of Public Safety sent 750 helmets and 80 sets of body armor to Ukraine.
- What are some other ways you've seen communities or organizations trying to help Ukraine?
