Condolences to the officers family. There is at least 1 "bullet proof" cellphone case I am aware of, from Marudai in Japan. There is a YouTube video showing it hit by a .50 BMG and surviving the hit, but breaking the screen when it landed.
$650 and it appears to add about 3/4" to the depth of an iPhone.
Vestguard makes a Kevlar iPad cover as do a few others for smart phones.
Conversely it could have been the layering sandwich of outer case, aluminum shell, battery, PCB, IC's , structural supports, LCD, touchpad and screen protector.
