    I'll venture a bet here, that most people think that the cops just wear gloves to look 'tough'. But they actually wear them because they are afraid. Afraid mostly to get poked by a needle while either patting a subject for weapons, searching a vehicle or house (or anything), or wrestling a subject who is resisting arrest.
    I actually wore my Kevlar gloves probably 90% of every shift I worked, because there are plenty of times that you just don't have time to say "hold on, I need to glove up".

    As for detecting, I Glove Up Every time, from the time the gear comes out of the car, until the time the gear goes back in at the end of the day. The rubber palm/finger gloves still won't stop a poke from that or any needle, but they will resist a sharp piece of glass or metal!

    Happy hunting Ya'll


    Great advice!
