Threat level I and above vests are eligible for funding. Specific makes and models of all NIJ-approved level IV vests are online and viewable, once you register; or you can link to http://www.nlectc.org/ for a current listing through the NIJ JustNet site. BVP funds can be used for tactical-level armor, but only 1 vest per officer in a replacement cycle. It the agency purchases a tactical-level vest for an officer, it must be his primary vest; they can not then use BVP funds to purchase a regular-duty vest for the same officer during the same replacement cycle.
