Criminals buy bullet-proof vests, McDowell buys stab-proof vests

Minister for Justice Michael McDowell has announced that the Gardai are to get issued with stab-proof vests and that a tender process will start.

Michael McDowell says there have been trials carried out on different models of vests to choose the most suitable for this country.

I may be taking a wild stab in the dark, but I'd guess the Gardai might have more use for bullet proof vests? After all these days bullet proof vests and guns seem to be standard issue for criminals so it's only a matter of time until the Department of Justice has to buy bullet-proof vests to replace the new stab-proof ones.
