Description:
The Attorney General directed the Office of Justice Programs (OJP) to convene a summit with representatives of federal, state, local, and tribal law enforcement; law enforcement associations; manufacturers of bullet-resistant fabric and equipment; and standards and testing organizations. This Summit was held on March 11, 2004 in Washington, D.C.

During the full-day Summit, participants reviewed preliminary testing information available from NIJ and discussed the suitability of ZylonŽ-based bullet-resistant vests for law enforcement use and the effectiveness of NIJ's certification process. Summit participants also discussed the future of bullet-resistant and testing technology.
