Don't toss your expired vest, use it to keep yourself safer
Ptlm. Art Holecek, Hinsdale (IL) PD
Rather than throw away my recently expired ballastic vest, I had "POLICE" patches sewn on the front & back. The vest is kept in the trunk of my personal car. When off-duty, I now have a ballastic vest that identifies me to responding officers.
