Bulletproof vest issued to German police

Posted on March 16, 2009 - Filed Under Bullet Proof |

A new bulletproof vest has been issued to women police officers in Germany to offer a second line of defence if they are shot on duty.

The underwear is designed to be worn under a bulletproof vest to better absorb the impact of gunshots. More than 3,000 frontline officers are being encouraged to swap to safer lingerie.

The policewoman who came up with the idea says the bras will offer significant protection to female officers. “The impact of a bullet can push the metal and plastic bits of the bra into an officer’s body, causing serious injury,” Carmen Kibat, an adviser on equal opportunities for the Bundespolizei, Germany’s federal police force, told the BBC.

“I always thought normal bras posed a safety risk and I wanted to change that,” she said.

The bras, which have already been tried by dozens of officers, do not contain underwiring, metal or plastic studs, or fasteners. They are white, thickly padded, and made from cotton or polyester. They also have the word Polizei (police) emblazoned across the bottom.

Officers will be allowed to pick three bras of different designs.
