IACP/DuPont™ Kevlar® Survivors’ Club®

DuPont is proud to partner with the IACP in a non-commercial way to promote body armor wear via the IACP/DuPont™ Kevlar® Survivors Club®.  This partnership began in 1987 and to-date has honored over 3100 officers who have been saved from death or serious injury by wearing body armor.  The information collected from these “saves” is collected, maintained in a confidential database, and is shared by written request with academia, the Dept. of Justice, and others to promote wear and improve armor designs.
