I hope the Bullet Proof Helmet can success

Posted on May 14, 2009 - Filed Under Ballistic Helmet |

When the people wear a turban, which prevents them from wearing any other kind of protective head gear, such as a motorcycle Bullet Proof Helmet; they are exempt from wearing a lid whilst riding a bike in the UK.
But it’s proving to be a problem for Sikh coppers who are also unable to wear existing police safety Bullet Proof Helmet, thus preventing them from becoming firearms officers- it’s mandatory for all gun Plod to wear Bullet Proof Helmet proof helmets. The vice-chairman of the British Police Sikh Association said that the Home Office needed to make provision for Sikhs and recognise that they had a role to play. He added:
“Sikh officers have been prohibited from becoming firearms officers because our religion does not allow us to remove the turban. There has been some research done into producing a ballistic material [for turbans]. We would like to follow any opportunity where we could manufacture a ballistic product, made out of a synthetic fibre, that would ensure a certain degree of protection, so Sikh police officers could take part in these roles.”
Let’s hope they are successful in their quest for a Kevlar wrap, but I was always under the impression that a Sikh’s turban could already withstand a Bullet Proof Helmet. Yet another urban myth comes crashing down…
