October 1, 2005

The Money Crunch: Getting the Goods

November 1, 2004

Gone are the days of simple two-way radios and revolvers. Now each officer must carry a multitude of less-lethal weapons in addition to a gun and probably a PDA. While grants are useful, they aren’t the only means by which to acquire funding for equipment.

Gas Pains

August 1, 2004

No piece of necessary equipment is more debilitating under the stress of violent aggression and physical exertion than a gas mask. If you’re on a SWAT team, it’s inevitable that you will have to deploy in a gas mask. Which means that SWAT trainers must train you to work, move, and fight in a respirator. It’s not as easy as it looks.

Gas Masks and Air Packs

March 1, 2004

Preparing for the Worst

February 1, 2003

Less than two years ago, weapons of mass destruction (WMD) such as gas, viruses, and nukes were mostly the stuff of Tom Clancy novels, not the everyday concern of the nation’s law enforcement. But that was before 9/11.

Kimber Arms LAPD SWAT With Custom II

November 1, 2002

What's in a Boot?

October 1, 2002

You probably know what you like, but you probably also see something new each time you browse your local uniform store, looking to replace your boots. Companies continue to come up with newer and better technologies every year.

Field Dressing

August 1, 2002

The reality of the contemporary police special ops team is very different than the image of LAPD SWAT that was burned into America's collective consciousness by the hit show.

The Fifth Element

August 1, 2002

Welcome to the new battleground. Called "fifth-dimensional battlespace," it takes the old three-dimensional battlefield (the spatial dimensions of length, width, height or depth of an area), and the temporal dimension of time, and adds the fifth dimension of cyberspace.

TWO if by Sea: Tactical Waterborne Units

August 1, 2002

The lesson of the Baltimore exercise is quite clear: police agencies can't just arbitrarily decide that their jurisdictions end at the water's edge and assume that anything on the water will be handled by the Coast Guard, the Navy, or somebody else.

Have Gun--Will Travel

June 1, 2002

Today's law enforcement personnel have many choices beyond leather, and much more to carry than just a pistol.

Own the Night

May 1, 2002

Euro Counter-Terrorism

April 1, 2001

Conventional police forces deployed in large and normally  slow-to-react formations were not capable of dealing with small, clandestine terrorist cells, striking swiftly and melting into the civil scenery.

Super-Sock

April 1, 2001
CTS's Super-Sock was, according to the NTOA, the most accurate Less-Lethal round ever tested by them. This kind of quality control is typical of CTS as their impact on the market is felt with the introduction of some new and innovative products. The Super-Sock deploys fully as soon as it exits the muzzle with no "unfolding" necessary as is the case with traditional flat bag rounds.
