"This confirms that these vests simply don't do what they claim to do, which is to stop bullets,"

Well, there are bullets, and there are Bullets, and there are BULLETS - which ones do you want them to stop? (AND there are HEADshots; but we'll save THAT for another time)

Don't these police depts TEST the vests before buying them?

This is what happens with the continuing dumbing down of America - even the police assume it is somebody else's responsibility.

"Hey man, it ain't my job" goes the union mantra.

Long story short:
It's old news, and the manufacturer is out of business.
