    While any deaths are bad, the decline is nice to hear.

    Amen to that, glad to see numbers decreasing. It said 26 were wearing body armor. Does this mean the others did not wear a vest?

    Yep, you would be shocked a the number of officers who think it makes them "look fat."

    "Hey! You are fat!" I would tell them, but it usually did not help.

    Another issue is that they are terribly uncomfortable here in the Georgia heat. Not as uncomfortable as a bullet hole, though.

    They are actually more comfortable to wear rather than not wear in the winter . . .

    yeah I am sure it isnt comfortable. I know the guys in FL hated them and my friend would always complain. But he was allowed to wear shorts, which sorta helped he said.

    To bad technology wasnt cheaper and more available for a better, thinner, ligher product!

    They are uncomfortable and very hot in the summer, but I wear mine when in uniform. It's actually our policy to wear them when in uniform.



    ... of course I look fat even without the vest. That's probably because I am fat. :shock:

    Wearing a BPV is not mandatory?
