When body armor was first used in law enforcement, officers would wear special duty bulletproof armor outside of their uniforms- designed only for emergency situations- that were not concealable. Most body armor were bulky, heavy, and cumbersome. In time and with developments in material and design, police and corrections officers were issued lighter, compact, and thinner material concealable body armor panels. Carriers began to get small, and the fit started to get better for officers, but it did take a long time to get to that point with not many carrier options initially available.
