Switzerland. Geneva. Paquis neighborhood. Two police officers control the identity of a man eating an apple. The policemen look for people selling illegal substances (drugs) in the streets. The man is a black african from Guinea who will be left free after the control. Both policemen have a two-way radio which is a radio that can both transmit and receive (a transceiver). A two-way radio (transceiver) allows the operator to have a conversation with other similar radios operating on the same radio frequency (channel). Two-way radios are available with hand-held portable configurations. Hand-held radios are often called walkie-talkies or handie-talkies. Both police officers are wearing a ballistic vest, bulletproof vest or bullet-resistant vest which is an item of personal armor that helps absorb the impact from knives, firearm-fired projectiles and shrapnel from explosions, and is worn on the torso. Soft vests are made from many layers of woven or laminated fibers and can be capable of protecting the wearer from small-caliber handgun and shotgun projectiles, and small fragments from explosives such as hand grenades. 15.03.12 © 2012 Didier Ruef..
