Further, police began to adopt body armor around 1973 (Estey, 1997), which is coterminous with the beginning of the decline in police homicides. Although there is little doubt that body armor protects officers struck in the vest by a caliber of bullet for which the armor was designed to stop, there are no accurate data on body armor wear rates that can be used to estimate their impact on police fatalities (Brown and Langan, 2001:20). Data on agency mandatory vest-wear policies, though, are available, and it is reasonable to expect that vest wear rates are higher in these agencies than in those where the decision to wear body armor is left to officer discretion (Geller and Scott, 1992:133).
Criminal Opportunity Theory and the Murder of Police 25 Said a different way, in areas where most crime is trivial, one would not expect most offenders threatened by arrest to find arresting officers highly attractive “targets” for murder, as the average offender is unlikely to be highly motivated to murder or seriously injure police to avoid rather minor punishment. In areas where much crime is serious, the attractiveness of police as targets for murder should be greater because of greater threats to offenders’ freedom and safety.
The adoption of body armor by police may have been the greatest contributor to the decline. For instance, using a case-control design, the FBI estimates the odds of dying are 14 times greater for officers not wearing vests (Law enforcement officers killed and assaulted, 1994:7), and Knight and Brierley (1998:23) report that during 1987-1997 some 1,247 assaulted officers survived potentially fatal injuries because of body armor. Further, police began to adopt body armor around 1973 (Estey, 1997), which is coterminous with the beginning of the decline in police homicides.
