The National Institute of Justice (NIJ) hereby advises that Safariland model 2220-1 has been suspended from the NIJ Ballistic-resistant Body Armor Compliant Products List (CPL) pending further investigation by the NIJ Compliance Testing Program. This action is being taken due to a request by the manufacturer to have the model removed from the CPL.
NIJ encourages law enforcement and corrections officers to continue to wear their body armor until it is replaced. Wearing untested armor is better than not wearing any armor.
