What is the standard respiratory protection for military and law enforcement professionals - tight or loose fitting?

The Homeland Defense and Security Information Analysis Center (HDIAC)  received a technical inquiry requesting information on the standard use and regulations of respirator-based, personal protective equipment for law enforcement and military – specifically, if there is a standard between tight-fitting or loose-fitting respiratory protection.

HDIAC staff started collecting information from federal regulations available online published by multiple government regulatory agencies. More specific information will be found in the technical report to be published at a future date.
