HPD receiving first vests to protect officers from high-powered rifle shots
houstonchronicle.com / Fri, 2 Dec 2016 23:57:00 UT

The first shipment of heavy vests to protect Houston officers from high-powered rifle shots has arrived in the city and next week will be handed over to the Houston Police Department. Built like a sandwich board with straps, each external vest will cover an officer's abdomen with a ceramic plate on the chest and another on the back to repel shots that could fatally damage organs. Law enforcement agency leaders nationwide have been seeking ways to provide body-armor protection for officers through vests, helmets and other technology. Stored in a backpack, a protective vest can be pulled out and placed over an officer's uniform in the event of an active shooter incident.
