January 2022 Guardian Angels: Happy New Year!

Posted by Morgan Hallenbeck on 6th Jan 2022

We're kicking off 2022 with another batch of Guardian Angel recipients! This month, we've selected three well-deserving applicants to each receive a FREE Level IIIA Concealable Multi-Threat Vest. It's an excellent option for anyone looking for protection from the most common threats as it defends against bullets, strikes and slashes. The self-structured™ panels in this Safe Life Defense vest have also led to this armor being rated #1 for comfort for 12+ hours of wear by customer review.

As we turn the page on the previous year, we'd like to take a moment to congratulate January's picks (Savannah Baker, Aaron Turner and, Thomas Vallo), and thank all of the guardians out there who risk their safety to do good work. It's the change-makers, like this, that turn small actions into big impacts for everyone. Again, we find ourselves humbled to have the privilege to protect those who protect others. Happy New Year, all!

#1 Savannah Baker | Law Enforcement

“As an officer helping others is my main goal. I worked in dispatch for a long while and then switched to being a police officer because it has always been my dream. I am currently working on my bachelor's degree in criminal justice. I have already received my associates. I would love to eventually go into investigations and/or crime scene and hopefully, be on a swat team one day.”

#2 Aaron Turner | Security

“Protecting people before myself has always been an ambition of mine. With the intention of becoming a police officer, I’ve had a lot of years working in security. I’ve worked retail, on the streets, around school grounds, and in hospitals as well. I knew from early childhood what I wanted to do and what I am capable of. I’ve had a lot to overcome with being diagnosed with autism. I was told I will never get a high school diploma or a valid driver's license. I achieved all of those, as well as earned an athletic scholarship to play football and my degree in criminal justice. Even though this all sounds glamorous, I still believe there’s a lot I have to prove each and every day.”

#3 Thomas Vallo | Bailiff

“I am a simple man who believes in working hard, being a protector and provider for not just my immediate family but for my community as well. On a daily basis, I deal with individuals whose crimes range from intent to distribute to child custody hearings and everything in between. I am currently employed with The Pueblo of Acoma Tribal Courts Department which is located in Acoma, New Mexico. I am a religious man, I believe in doing the right thing even when no one is looking and I am a proud member of The Acoma Tribe. ”
