Body armor is essential personal protective equipment for every law enforcement officer, regardless of their assignment, work location or rank in the organization. Plain and simple, body armor saves lives every day. 

Body armor, under or over a uniform shirt, needs to fit securely, protect vital organs and remain comfortable as an officer sits in a patrol vehicle, walks a neighborhood street, or pursues a fleeing suspect on foot. Given the range of use cases, advances in materials and design, manufacturing and testing standards for body armor, as well as the variability in officer body shape, the process to research, test and procure body armor is complex.
