(Newser) – Police records released yesterday are painting a picture of George Zimmerman's period on bond, and they contain some interesting details. The neighborhood watchman ordered a bulletproof vest and an infrared home security system, the AP reports. A police supply sales representative told officials about the order; Zimmerman told them the gear was for his own safety. He called the infrared device "an extra layer of security at the point of entry at his residence," the records say, via USA Today.

Zimmerman wore a GPS ankle device during the period, which he often complained was uncomfortable, prompting authorities to adjust it. He and his wife moved at least three times last year, the records indicate, and he told police the couple would be changing their phone numbers after the media got hold of hers. Meanwhile, in accordance with directions, he phoned police every other day between 10am and noon to check in. At one point, deputies noted a trip to a sporting goods store and checked the store's surveillance video to ensure he hadn't entered the gun section.
