Ponca City Police Department-
Uniforms that some of our Police Officers are wearing have recently changed.
Patrol officers now have the option to use an external vest that allows a bulletproof vest to be inserted and gear strapped to the outside, relieving pressure on the hips and back.
A loaded duty belt can weigh quite a bit, and can be uncomfortable during a lengthy shift. So several ergonomic analyses have suggest that load-bearing “carrier” vests may have an advantage over duty belts.
