In December 2022, the Provincial Police Headquarters in Bydgoszcz purchased: inflatable lifejackets (7 pieces), goggles (15 pieces), retractors – lanyards for handguns (22 pieces) and tactical gloves (22 pieces) for participants of parachute and water rescue training within the project “Specialized training as an opportunity to increase effectiveness of law enforcement agencies in the fight against organised crime”.
Inflatable lifejackets provide protection for officers supporting underwater works (controller, medic on a boat), it will also be used for combat operations in waters and high-altitude training with the use of helicopter in waterside areas.
The goggles will be used for combat operations where eye protection is essential.
Lanyards will be used to secure handguns during parachute jumps, water rescue exercises and to carry out combat operations, exercises using rope techniques, high-altitude training with the use of a helicopter and other tasks in which there is a likelihood of handgun removal from the holster.
The gloves will be used to protect the hands of the jumpers during parachute jumps (it provide thermal and anti-cut protection) and to protect the hands of the participants of the water rescue training (high durability of the gloves, resistance to cuts).
The project and the equipment were financed with Norwegian Financial Mechanism`s means and a state budget within the programme „Internal Affairs”. The programme is under supervision of Interior and Administration Ministry.
