Officer protection encompasses a wide range of products and areas. Weapons, equipment, and protective clothing all are part of the equation. However, newer, smarter tools are being built not just for more flexibility or power but for the ability to protect law enforcement by defusing a difficult or dangerous situation before it reaches the point of no return.
In an increasingly connected world, it does not take long for negative incidents to reach the public eye. Though physical protection is certainly at the forefront of any agency’s approach, a more preventive approach can help protect against incidents large and small that not only put officers at risk but also damage community trust.
