Remington's R12P Tactical shotgun provides 12-, 14.5-, 18-, or 22-inch barrels with capacity for 5, 6, 7, or 9 shells (+1 included).

Remington R12P Tactical Shotgun

Remington's innovative R12P Tactical shotgun, which will be available later this year, is the law enforcement version of its Versa Max shotgun. The self-regulating, dual-pistol VersaPort gas system allows the semi-auto shotgun to handle any length of shell you can pull from your go bag. Remington has begun offering initial builds of the R12P to law enforcement customers, and will release the gun in the fourth quarter. The gun was introduced at SHOT Show in January. It will retail for about $1,100. View a video of the shotgun here.

The Ultra Handcuff utilizes technology exclusive to ASP, reducing the "weight on the belt" with a specially designed aluminum frame. The Ultra features an interchangeable lock set, available in one-, two-, and three-pawl designs. The dual keyways of the cuff give the user the ability of release from either side, increasing flexibility and safety when controlling a subject. The smooth-edged bow of the Ultra is available in either steel or aluminum, and cuffs are laser engraved with the date of manufacture and a unique serial number.

Use-of-Force Simulators

High-tech shoot-don't-shoot scenarios let you train realistically without stepping onto the street. You don't want to find out in the middle of a gunfight that you need to work on your judgment, tactics, and reaction time under stress. That's why systems that immerse you in realistic scenarios—complete with lethal and less-lethal options, and even physical consequences in some cases—are so valuable in training. View our slideshow of seven use-of-force simulator systems that provide this important training.

In the 1950s, the NYPD used Ford RMPs (Radio Motor Patrol). This photo shows one at Coney Island in 1956. Note the passenger-side only spotlight.

Historic NYPD Patrol Cars

The NYPD began using horse-drawn police wagons in the later part of the 19th Century to move police forces from place to place. Motorized wagons came into use later, and it wasn't until the 1920s and 30s that the department began regularly using motorized patrol cars. Plymouth two-door radio cars were the standard in the late 1930s and 1940s. By the 1970s, the Plymouth Fury was the mainstay. Black-and-white photos courtesy of the New York City Police Museum.

The LC9 comes with both flat and extended magazine base pads.

Ruger's LC9

Ruger developed the LC9 as a 9mm version of its Lightweight Compact Pistol (LCP). The LC9 is a DAO hammer-fired sub-compact pistol that works well as a backup for off-duty law enforcement officers. It provides a seven-round capacity and retails for $443. We featured Ruger's LC9 as our "Arsenal" review for March 2012. Photos by Butch Simpson.

Photos 1-5 show an escape from the rear naked choke. Use both of your hands to pull downward on his wrist and/or forearm. At the same time, tuck your chin to your chest. Pull hard to relieve as much pressure as you can.

Thermal imaging makes us of the difference in temperature between an object and its surroundings. This image was taken from a Star SAFIRE system mounted to a fixed-wing PC-12 in Hillsboro, Ore.

Thermal Imaging

A high-end thermal imaging system such as FLIR's Star SAFIRE HD offers law enforcement officers a powerful search tool for detecting heat-emitting objects across large search areas. The system offers a high-definition infrared camera mounted to an airborne unit that produces both EO (electro-optic) color and IR (infrared) white-hot images. Photos courtesy of FLIR Systems.
