Body armor has been an indispensable equipment for officers’ personal protection for years. Ballistic-resistant body armor aims to shield against several types of rifle ammunition and handgun. Majority of ballistic panels are made of synthetic fibers having a tensile potency greater than an equivalent weight of steel. The soaring number of firearm threats have not only emanated from handguns, but also from military-grade ammunition and rifles. The prevalence of shooting in schools, public gatherings or nightclubs has signified the importance of body armor. In July 2018 three police officers at a motel in Kansas City succumbed to a semi-automatic rifle fired by a man. While in July 12, 2016 a sniper armed with an AK-47 rifle killed five policemen in Dallas.
