DuPont is proud to partner with the IACP to help promote body armor wear via the IACP/DuPont™ Kevlar® Survivors Club®. This partnership began in 1987 and to-date has honored over 3100 officers who have been saved from death or serious injury by wearing body armor. The information collected from these “saves” is collected, maintained in a confidential database, and is shared by written request with academia, the Dept. of Justice, and others to promote wear and improve armor designs.
The IACP-DuPont Kevlar Survivors’ Club® supports the overarching vision of the IACP Center for Officer Safety and Wellness and the Survivors Club was created with the following mission:
- To reduce death and disability by encouraging increased wearing of personal body armor.
- To recognize and honor those deserving individuals who, as a result of wearing personal body armor, have survived a life-threatening or life-disabling incident.
- To serve the law enforcement community by collecting this important data and sharing valuable information relating to these survivor incidents
Over the past 30 years we have honored more than 3100 officer who have been saved by death or serious injury be wearing body armor. We have captured a few of their stories - click here to view their powerful message and story.
