MSP, Hardwire Eye Pilot Program On Vehicle Door Armor
BERLIN – The Maryland State Police (MSP) has entered into a pilot program with Hardwire LLC to use the company’s Police Vehicle B-Kit door armor on a select number of police vehicles.
On Monday, Gov. Larry Hogan, MSP Superintendent Colonel William Pallozzi and Hardwire announced that some state police vehicles will be outfitted with bulletproof panels made in Pocomoke.
This will be the latest venture for the Pocomoke-based company, which manufactures protective gear for various agencies around the country.
Emily Tunis, president of Hardwire, said the door armor provides discrete exterior protection for state troopers.
“It essentially provides blended protection,” she said. “It’s a unique way of adding extra protection for the officer in the car.”
