Police Product Test: Tru-Spec Urban Force TRU Apparel  

March 14, 2017

By A.J. George

The whole idea behind Tru-Spec's Urban Force TRU (Tactical Response Uniform) line is to retain all of the militaristic features that make the clothing fully functional for law enforcement use, yet make the appearance more clean and professional and less G.I. Joe.

Where are the Helmets?  

March 13, 2017

By Dave Smith
