We're going to purchase body armor in the near future. Do you have any advice or suggestions?
NIJ Guide 100-98, Selection and Application Guide to Police Body Armor, contains important information to assist agencies and individual officers in selecting, purchasing, and caring for body armor. Recently, NIJ has just introduced two new body armor standards (one for ballistics and one for stab and puncture resistance), and NLECTC is preparing an updated edition of the Selection and Application Guide. This new edition will probably be available in early 2001. To obtain a copy of the most current version, call NLECTC at 800-248-2742 or 301-519-5060, or download a copy from .
