Cause for concern? PoliceOne addresses current media coverage regarding Zylon ballistic vests
Nearly two years ago, PoliceOne began sharing reports of troubling safety issues related to the use of Zylon in ballistic vests. Zylon has since become a critical safety issue, creating significant concern among officers. Recognizing that no single resource existed for information on this highly complex issue, PoliceOne created a section dedicated to Zylon and its use in ballistic vests (www.policeone.com/zylon). Throughout the span of PoliceOne’s coverage, several studies released called into question the durability of Zylon.
