This article is a partial summary of research conducted by the Police Academy, Szczytno, as a part of a research projectDOBR-BIO4/045/13067/2013 financed from funds for the “Design individualization of concealable ballistic vests” project.The project is being carried out in 2013–2015 in a scientific-industrial consortium composed of the Institute of Security Technologies“MORATEX” in Lodz, the Central Institute of Labour Protection in Warsaw, the Enterprise of Protective Equipment “MASKPOL S.A”in Konieczki and the Military Institute of Armament Technology in Zielonka. The project lead is the Institute of Security Technologies“MORATEX” in Lodz. The project is financed by The National Centre of Research and Development in Warsaw. This article describesa part of research conducted by the Police Academy, Szczytno. The main aim of the research project is individualization of the designof a concealable vest so as to make it appropriate for the needs of its future user. To this end, a procedure will be designed usinga scanning device, which will allow researchers to adjust the vest to the user. Apart from being bulletproof, the vest is meantto protect from dangers of a needle, spike or knife attack. The scope of the necessary protection will be established after the analysisof collected data regarding attacks on police.
