SPINDALE, N.C., Dec. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- First Choice Armor, Inc., a leading international provider of personal products for law enforcement, Homeland Security and military personnel, has won a contract valued at over $5 million to provide armored SUVs to the Iraqi Baghdad Police College, as part of the U.S. "Rebuilding Iraq " initiative.

Initially selling its custom armored vehicles to the private sector, First Choice determined that low-profile armored vehicles are an extremely important tactical element of security operations in places like Afghanistan and Iraq . Accordingly, First Choice has made mission-specific modifications to meet stringent requirements in these active theaters of operation.

Daniel Walsh , president of First Choice, said, "We're extremely proud to be chosen to provide armored SUVs to the Iraqi Baghdad Police College. First Choice has been a part of the Iraqi reconstruction effort since 2005 supplying, among other things, tactical body armor for the Iraqi Defense Forces. Each employee of First Choice understands that every piece of body armor and every vehicle that First Choice provides for this cause helps accelerate the timeline for Iraqis to take charge of their own security."
