An officer actually shot at the glass to demonstrate how resistant it is to bullets.

“This give our officers an extra level of protection and gives them an opportunity to disengage or get into a better position when taking gunfire. It keeps them safe,” said Longmont Police Sgt. Jeff Satur.

Police say the glass can stop bullets from most handgun or rifles. The department hopes to have it installed on all of the patrol cars soon.
