Dallas cops make body armor mandatory

Officers without vests 14 times more likely to be injured, FBI study finds

By Tanya Eiserer
The Dallas Morning News

DALLAS — The federal government has been pushing law enforcement agencies to make all uniformed police wear bulletproof vests following a sharp increase in the number of officers killed in the line of duty in 2010. An FBI study found that an officer who was not wearing a vest was 14 times more likely to be injured in the line of duty.

To get departments to adopt mandatory-wear policies, the Justice Department decided that it would not grant law enforcement agencies funds for body armor - which amounted to about $100,000 annually in Dallas - unless they enact such a policy.
