Laser Sights and Weapon Lights

December 1, 2008

The majority of officer-involved shootings occur in low-light or dark conditions. So one of the most important tools that you can have is a good light. And sometimes the best place for you to have that good light is on the business end of your handgun or long gun.

FN Herstal FNP-45 Duty Pistol

November 1, 2008

For a couple of years now, Belgium's FN Herstal has been working to secure a significant slice of the American market for law enforcement duty pistols. The Belgian company, which makes the legendary Browning Hi-Power pistol, launched its first polymer police handgun, the FNP-9 (9mm), back in 2006. The FNP is now available in 9mm, .40 S&W, .357 SIG, and .45 ACP.

Police Product Test: Insight Tech-Gear Arcturus Light

September 1, 2008

The Arcturus carries on the legacy that Insight Tech-Gear has built over the last few years. I like the light and carry it daily; I can't give it a higher endorsement than that.

Quiet Traction

August 1, 2008

Stealth Force is the new incarnation of Magnum USA's popular Stealth line of boots. Available in a host of styles—all in black leather and nylon—the Stealth Force line has a boot for patrol, SWAT missions, and the station, and pretty much everything in between.

Next Generation

November 1, 2007

When it comes to night vision gear, just about all roads lead through ITT. But a new technology from Xenonics Holdings offers a less-expensive, more durable alternative for some applications.

Police Product Test: 5.11 Tactical Aggressor Jacket

November 1, 2007

Overall, the 5.11 Tactical Aggressor is a great jacket. It fits well, has plenty of shoulder room, doesn't bind when you draw a handgun or shoulder a long gun, and it's long enough to conceal a handgun.

Elbeco Meridian Jacket

October 1, 2007

Elbeco's Meridian jacket was created with one goal in mind: versatility. It's kind of like that old Certs commercial with the tagline "Two mints in one." The Meridian is many jackets in one.

Atlanco/Tru-Spec Tactical Response Uniform

July 1, 2007

If your agency is in the market for new tactical uniforms, check out Atlanco/Tru-Spec Tactical Response Uniforms or "TRU." Tru-Spec gear is high quality and affordably priced. I know several soldiers who have worn the Tru-Spec ACUs, and they have found them to hold up better than the Army issue.

Modular Ballistics

June 1, 2007

The name "Dragon Fire" implies ferocity and power during combat. Well, this ballistic vest is built to give as good as it gets.

Police Product Test: EOTech Holographic Weapons System

March 1, 2007

The large viewing window of an EOTech holographic scope enables the operator to retain peripheral vision while viewing the target area. This is an incredibly important feature for law enforcement officers who are advancing on a target or searching a high-threat location.

First-Light USA Liberator Tactical Light

September 1, 2006

Hands-free operation allowing for true two-handed shooting sets this light apart.

Blood Clotters

August 1, 2004

Medical personnel have known for years that approximately 80 percent of combat deaths occur within 30 minutes of wounding, often because of loss of blood

Trial Run: Duty Boots

POLICE magazine asked three police officers from the Redondo Beach (Calif.) Police Department to wear five pairs of patrol boots for one shift each and tell us what they thought. Officers Dave Atwater, Denise Brenner, and Corey King gave their ratings to their test boots.

Visual Aids

February 1, 2004

Believe it or not, many cops are walking around with the decaying remnants of America's nuclear arsenal strapped to their hips.

Instant Imaging

December 1, 2003

Today, instant law enforcement photography has taken a quantum leap with the adoption of digital cameras by many departments.

Breaking Out the Big Guns

August 1, 2003

I read today about a Canadian team in Afghanistan making a confirmed kill at 2,670 yards. That's a mile and a half, give or take 30 yards. I can't even see a bus at a mile and a half, let alone a man-size target.

Hear Today, Gone Tomorrow

August 1, 2003

Spend any amount of time on or near the firing line and your hearing will become damaged. And with the great variety of hearing protection devices available today, ranging from simple disposable foam plugs to active electronic muffs, you’re foolish if you don’t make the most of them.

I See You

August 1, 2003

While running after a suspect, I charged around the corner of an alley and the guy hit me over the head, knocking my lights out. I really could have used a tool that let me see around corners that day. And now, today’s cops can have them: easy-to-use tactical video systems.
