Impact Armor Technologies, an Ohio-based manufacturer of ceramic armor, has developed a ballistic armored clipboard for law enforcement officers.
I have never been involved in law enforcement, and don’t profess to know a thing about police tactics, but I can’t help wondering how useful such a device is in the real world. Its only practical use, that I can see, is protecting the head or, if not wearing a ballistic vest, the chest in a situation where both retreat or returning fire is not an option. On the other hand it does look like quite a decent clipboard with a large rubberized grip.
Current and former peace officers, please tell us what you think in the comments below.
