Dear PoliceOne Member,

We reported yesterday that an Ohio police chief has banned the use of tactical vests because he thinks they give the wrong image of police to the public, but ergonomic researchers believe these vests are a safe and healthier alternative to the traditional duty belt.

Does your agency allow officers to wear load-bearing vests? Click here to take our poll and then check out the load-bearing vests on display at SHOT Show 2020.
