The Police Vest was one of the items available at the launch of Torn on 15 November 2004, having been introduced during the Torn City Beta. It can be equipped in the body slot.
The Police Vest is equipped in the body armor slot.
Police Vests can be bought from other players through the Item Market, Bazaars, or Trades, but as Defensive items do not stack they must be purchased one by one, making it time consuming to buy in bulk.

No armor that is equipped in the body slot offers foot or head protection.
Prior to an August 2014 armor update, the Police Vest was called "Riot Gear."  This was likely changed so there wouldn't be any confusion when the Riot Armor set was released. The Riot Armor set was not released until late 2021, but has existed in the game's code since 2013.
An early item image for Riot Gear showed a person fully clad in armor, including a helmet and riot shield. At the time of this image, players only had one slot for body armor. This item image was changed to a vest in July 2012, two years before the item's 2014 name change to Police Vest.
