Law Enforcement Protection — Our Finest Deserve the Best
For the men and women in law enforcement, being protected from threats like bullets, stabbing weapons, and blunt trauma is critical. That’s why law enforcement gear made with innovative, lightweight DuPont™ Kevlar® fiber, is so important.
Every day, police forces confront multiple, unpredictable situations. No one knows the difference the right body armour can make better than the 3,100 members of the IACP/DuPont™ Kevlar® Survivors’ Club® who have survived potential fatal or disabling injuries by wearing protective vests.
For over 30 years, DuPont has been committed to providing police forces with the superior bullet- and stab-resistant power of Kevlar® fibre. Also, with proven brands like DuPont™ Nomex®, Tyvek® or Tychem® in our portfolio, we help protect officers from thermal or chemical hazards.
This commitment drives us to actively collaborate with governments and law enforcement to help ensure that all employees have the access they deserve to the protection gear they need.
Whether it’s stopping a bullet or protecting against flames or chemicals, the relentless commitment of DuPont to research and product development helps officers come home safely day after day. Because the people who protect us all place the safety of others before themselves, DuPont strives to find solutions to help protect them — even in challenging situations.
