Law Enforcement Protection

Law Enforcement Gear — Our Finest Deserve the Best

For the men and women in law enforcement, being protected from threats like bullets, stabbing weapons, and fire is critical. That’s why gear made with innovative, lightweight DuPont™ Kevlar® fiber, is so important.

Every day, law enforcement officers confront multiple, unpredictable situations that can change in the blink of an eye. No one knows the difference the right body armor can make more than the 3,100 members of the IACP/DuPont Kevlar Survivors Club® who have survived potential fatal or disabling injuries by wearing protective vests.

For over 30 years, DuPont has been committed to providing law enforcement officers, SWAT, and Special Forces with the superior bullet and stab-resistant power of Kevlar® brand fibers. This commitment drives us to actively collaborate with governments and law enforcement to help ensure that all officers have the access they deserve to the protection they need.

Whether it’s stopping a bullet or protecting against stabs and hand-made weapons, the relentless commitment of DuPont to research and product development proudly helps officers come home safely day after day. Because the people who protect us all place the safety of others before themselves, DuPont strives to find solutions to help protect them — even in challenging situations.
