How do I dispose of my old vest?
Check with your department to see if they have a policy regarding the disposal of used body armor. If they don't, there are several organizations that accept donations of used vests for distribution to law enforcement agencies here in the U.S. Check with your local Fraternal Order of Police. If you are not comfortable donating your armor to another agency, you may also contact the manufacturer of your vest to determine if they will dispose of your armor. Some agencies have also used retired armor in the door panels of police cars or special operations vehicles.
