Switzerland. Geneva. Two police officers and a convict man enter the Paquis police station. The man was arrested while stealing articles in a department store. The inmate is an arab man from the Maghreb area. A police station or station house is a building which serves police officers and contains offices, locker rooms, temporary holding cells and interview/interrogation rooms. Both policemen are wearing a ballistic vest, bulletproof vest or bullet-resistant vest which is an item of personal armor that helps absorb the impact from knives, firearm-fired projectiles and shrapnel from explosions, and is worn on the torso. Soft vests are made from many layers of woven or laminated fibers and can be capable of protecting the wearer from small-caliber handgun and shotgun projectiles, and small fragments from explosives such as hand grenades. 15.03.12 © 2012 Didier Ruef..
