As a retired policeman and fireman respectively, Mike Larsen and Chad Hansen formed their company Advanced Armor Technology to provide more affordable high-quality body armor for police officers. Through their innovative design, they offer a complete set of body armor for under $500 that is sold throughout the United States.

This original equipment manufacturer is known for offering tactical gear that includes body armor, helmets, bulletproof vests and gun bags, all designed to keep law enforcement officers safer. In fact, Advanced Armor Technology products are such great quality they’re certified from the National Institute of Justice, which is the highest safety endorsement for a public safety product.

After seeing increases in the amount and severity of school shootings, Mike and Chad were inspired to create the SafeSchool program at Advanced Armor Technology. This is an innovative new product designed to notify all teachers, administrators and law enforcement if a school is facing danger. It’s like a panic button and, once triggered, sends an alert, so teachers know where the threat is and can get kids to safety quickly, especially with an escape plan in place. While the product is still in development, Mike says interest has been high, especially with a new shield for law enforcement officers that will be coming out soon.
