Current Activity

The National Institute of Justice (NIJ) is committed to providing cutting-edge knowledge and technology to the law enforcement community. As part of this commitment, NIJ recently collected responses to a questionnaire designed to provide baseline data to assess number, types and success rates of riot and ballistic helmets currently used in the field. This information will be used to assess the need for refinement of NIJ standards related to the use of helmets.
