German police are providing their women officers with an add-on to the bullet-stopping vest. Seems the female anatomy is such that bra support metalwork is likely to harm if impacted into the body by incoming projectiles.
As one who has been privileged to move about in police circles - and German ones in particular - I was intrigued by the marking Polizei on the garment. So, having removed the riot helmet, the gas mask, the padded gloves, the accessory belt with pistol, cs gas, handcuffs, radio and baton one will need to strip her down to the level of a special vest to realise one is getting involved with a police officer. Ordnung!
