Edison cops are first to fully deploy ballistic shields

Ballistic shields protected a phalanx of Edison police officers as they darted into a community center today in a mock demonstration of the new bulletproof protection, which is now standard issue in all township patrol cars.

The Edison Police Department is the first in the state to be fully deployed with the shields, officials said today as the 20-pound pieces of equipment were displayed. A federal grant was used to buy the 33 shields -- one for every police cruiser in the sprawling 30-square-mile suburb.
