1st Responder Tactical Blanket
Instant Armor's 1st Responder tactical blanket is portable by one officer and easily fits in the trunk of a cruiser. It can be deployed by two officers in less than 2.5 minutes and by one officer in less than four minutes to provide Level IIIA protection.
You can attach blankets to each other to create a "wall of protection" and even hang them from an SUV or other high point via rope through loops at the top of the blanket. No special tools are required and the blanket includes a one-inch ballistic overlap on adjoining panels. You can also replace individual panels that have been damaged by gunfire.

Flex Shield Ballistic Barrier
Patriot3's Flex Shield was designed to meet the requirement for compact, lightweight, and rapidly deployable Level IIIA protection. Its design allows it to be rolled into a compact size and stored in patrol vehicles with limited space. It weighs 11 pounds and measures 24x45 inches when fully deployed, 24x8 inches when rolled up.
Flex Shield deploys by pulling a release tab allowing the shield to drop with gravity and it's usable instantly in its Flex-Mode. It can be handled in Flex-Mode by an officer or placed over a vehicle door/windshield where it conforms to the vehicle's surface for more complete coverage. Stiffening rods can be inserted to make Flex Shield rigid for more traditional shield operations.

Ballistic Ticket Board
Cops making traffic stops need all the protection they can get. And that's the idea behind Pro-gard's Ballistic Ticket Board. The clear polycarbonate ticket board comes in two ballistic levels: Level I will stop three rounds of 9mm FMJ at 15 feet; Level II will stop three rounds of .357 Magnum soft point at 15 feet.
The board weighs 3.4 pounds, and features horizontal and vertical cutouts for holding driver licenses and an ergonomically placed handle.

Developed to address the growing need for ballistic protection during active shooter/first responder operations, Safariland's ProTech Strike Shield is designed with a distinctive flexible soft panel that allows it to be rolled up and stowed in a small carry bag for easy storage and portability yet capable of quick deployment when needed.
Available in black and O.D. green, the type IIIA shield's outer cover features an optional plate pocket which could be used to add Type III or IV hard armor rifle threat protection. The shield's ballistic material is comprised of a lightweight woven Aramid ballistic fiber and is wrapped in a heavy-duty, heat sealed and water-resistant panel cover. These features make the STRIKE shield lightweight, flexible, and high performing.
