NEW YORK: A new state rule requires all court officers to wear bulletproof vests. However, the breast constricting safety gear has no contoured room for breasts making it painful and irritating for women. According to female officers, the state Office of Court Administration has had so many complaints that the agency could be forced to temporarily curtail the bulletproof vest mandate. The problem appears to have begun after the agency opted to buy “unisex” or “unstructured” bulletproof vests instead of the more expensive ones fitted for breasts.
