We know that all law enforcement agencies must have a preparedness strategy in place should a riot occur. Unfortunately, civil unrest seemed to be at a peak in 2020 and many agencies were called into action. Whether it was an officer-involved shooting, presidential election, civil rights protests, or even the losing of a sporting event, it is law enforcement’s training and their specialized equipment to help respond and restore our communities and provide officer safety.
Unfortunately, many law enforcement agencies were not equipped with the right tools to combat unruly rioters. Some did not have the training or certification to use what tools they had.
In addition, OC or pepper spray was dispensed resulting in innocent bystanders including fellow officers and press being caught in the crossfire. Most used water to attempt to get rid of the OC but it takes 30-45 minutes for full sight to return and the burning sensation to end. Pepper spray soaked their clothes and uniforms filling their transport vehicles with contaminated air.
Is there an alternative?
Recently, Reflex Protect Tactical released its new line for the LE community…Reflex Protect Tactical RIOT. It hits harder and faster than OC and decons in minutes. Designed as a non-lethal way to handle rioters, combative detainees, and cell extractions, Reflex Protect Tactical RIOT Line sprays further than other products on the market and maintains a targeted stream that can be used for a more focused spray and also in enclosed places.
Our RIOT line was designed for:
EXTREME STOPPING POWER Immediate involuntary eye closure and disorientation incapacitates violent subjects upon contact. More volume allows the ability to control various correction and riot scenarios. The RP-76 is easily refillable and rechargeable initially comes with one Presidia Gel canister and one charged nitrogen canister). CLEAN UP Shockingly effective Reflex Remove® decontaminant neutralizes Presidia Gel® and provides relief for chemical agent symptoms within 2 minutes, compared to 15 minutes for competing products. Clean up is easy and fast for both people and surfaces. LE in Ohio call it “pure gold.” NEW PROPRIETARY FORMULA The product is NOT pepper spray, but rather an innovative, target-specific, sticky, and rapid onset reformulation of LE-trusted CS.
