Last month, a man who had been arrested by Brice spat into the officer’s eyes, which prompted the officer to fear that he had caught the coronavirus. He did a test, police officials said, which eventually turned negative.
Brice, not wanting this to happen to another officer, worked with Mosely to coordinate the donations.
Inspector David Wilkes thanked Mosley for the “incredible gesture”.
“There is a fantastic community spirit right now in and around Nottinghamshire and we are delighted to receive the donation,” Wilkes said in a statement.
Each shield took 60 to 90 minutes, according to the press release. Mosely told police that his 3D printer sometimes worked 24 hours a day to produce reusable visors.
“I hope this never happens to anyone else,” said Brice. “Nobody should tolerate this type of behavior in the work they do.”
