 Can used body armor be purchased with BVP funds?

Answer:
  • BVP funds may not be used to purchase used body armor, regardless of the age of the vest or the agency selling it, since the conditions in which the used armor was stored and the conditions in which it was exposed to can not be verified. Its prior use could have accelerated product deterioration, resulting in vest failure.
