Frequently Asked Questions

Can we include officers in the academy in our Bulletproof Vest Partnership (BVP) program application?

Yes. This program does not make a distinction between new hires and trained or certified law enforcement officers, as long as the officers in question meet the Act's definition when the BVP funded vests are purchased. The only relevant restriction applies to positions that are authorized or funded but unfilled; jurisdictions are not permitted to include anticipated vest needs for authorized but unfilled positions in their application.
