It's easy to just look at the upfront cost of armor but if you look at the numbers, lightweight swat armor is available at a lower overall cost than cheaper steel or old style ceramic plates. A 15 year warranty rifle plate can be just under 3 times more expensive than outdated armor that comes with a 5 year warranty. Add in the administrative costs of bringing in vendors and suppliers to show their latest and greatest every 5 years. Why not switch to every 15 years? Less hassle and more time focusing on the real mission.
Another cost savings with lightweight armor that has a 15 year warranty is the lowered long-term cost associated with bad necks, backs and knees. Care for these types of disabilities is expensive and does cost the municipality money.
Combining superior protection with lightweight SWAT armor that has a 15 year warranty makes sense to the SWAT operator as well as those tasked with the fiduciary responsibility to the tax payers.
