As the research director for America’s largest body armor company, Dr. Aaron Westrick was the first official to oppose the sale of Zylon bulletproof vests. Based on his disclosures, these defective vests were forced off the market and police officers' lives were saved. Dr. Westrick was fired and his case is still ongoing.
Dr. Westrick will speak about his whistleblower experience on June 6th from 3:15 to 4:15 pm at the ArmorCon Expo in Tysons Corner, Virginia. His presentation is entitled “Combating Defective Armor: Protecting Our Warriors: The Path of a Whistleblower in the Armor Industry.”
