Abstract
As a result of increasing hostilities in crowd and other group actions, it was deemed appropriate to investigate better means of protecting police officers exposed to the dangers generated by these crowds and groups. Staff Sergeant Vic Marion of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police Headquarters Training Section was instrumental in liasing with Point Blank Body Armor in Amittyvill, N.Y. to develop an upper body protective vest. The Star Vest was subsequently developed and evaluated by the RCMP's tactical troop in Ottawa, Ontario. It should be noted that Correctional Service Canada took an interest in this Star Vest, and has since adopted it for use within their correctional facilities.
