From St. Louis Post Dispatch article, “On July 14, 2015, the St. Louis police sergeant was shot while sitting in his car working a security job in the Central West End. His vest saved his life. And from that point on, he and his wife, Kelli Lowe, have dubbed the day his “Alive Day.”

From another St. Louis Post Disptach, “St. Louis Circuit Judge Christopher McGraugh sentenced Dale “Butch” Wolford to 30 years in prison and Edward J. Davis, the driver, to 25 years for the July 14, 2015, attack on Sgt. Charles Lowe. Police have described the shooting as an unprovoked ambush on Lowe, but neither jury believed Wolford and Davis targeted Lowe because he is a police officer. Lowe was in uniform when he was shot while working his overnight security job, watching over the block from his parked, running personal car. He has credited his bullet-resistant vest with helping to save his life.”

From Project Hurt website, “Here at Project HURT we know that once an environment is created that first responders can speak freely they can get the resources needed to aid in the mental healing process.”

At Project Hurt they also have the Code 73 program, “Code 73 is a collaborative event to bring the community and police department together we have Code 73 Victims Against Violence Walk. Often in the course of our duty we too as first responders become victims also, much like the members of the community we serve perpetrated by the same individuals.”
