Switzerland. Geneva. Two police officers and a prisoner in a cell at the Paquis police station. The man was arrested while selling drugs in the streets. The inmate is an african man from Guinea. A police station or station house is a building which serves for police officers. The building contains temporary holding cells and interview/interrogation rooms. Both police officers wear 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. 10.05.12 © 2012 Didier Ruef
