Tactical Gear & Riot Gear
When walking into an extremely violent situation, law enforcement officers must be protected from head to toe. The unknown, heavily armed resistance or even possible projectiles must be considered when preparing for duty and tense situations or possible riot environments. Policemen and women need to have the appropriate body armor, tactical gear and entry tools, if needed, to execute their mission.
Riot gear can and does incorporate different types of body armor and protective pads. Some basic gear that may be worn can include:
Every tactical situation is different, so having the ability to protect our police and citizens is important. Galls offers public safety professionals over 480 types of riot gear to choose from.
Popular Types of Riot & Tactical Gear
Entry shields are a type of ballistic police shield which is used by SWAT teams, patrol officers and military personnel as breaching tools and body protection. These bulletproof shields are highly effective in defensive situations and are successful in stopping projectiles, if fired upon. A favorite police shield is the ProTech Entry 2 Entry Shield. It is a penetration-resistant, energy-dispersing ballistic plate covered by a lightweight, projectile absorbing metal alloy skin. It is Threat Level IIIA tested, measures 24” x 48” and only weighs 24lbs. This shield is available plain or labeled specifically for Police and the Sheriff Department.
Armor Carriers are designed to protect bodies from projectiles and allow for storage of duty gear that police need so that they can do their job to the best of their ability. Armor carriers are available with a variety of features, such as a cummerbund-style stretch waist, moisture-wicking technology, extended shirttails and MOLLE compatibility. One of the most popular plate carriers is the 5.11 Class A uniform outer vest carrier. It allows you to enjoy the comfort and convenience of a police outer vest carrier while providing a seamless, professional look. This carrier is designed with a perfect blend of durability, performance and comfort.
Tactical Goggles protect the eyes and allow for an unimpeded view of the situation at hand. The Smith Optics Boogie Low Profile Goggle offers impact protection that meets the US MIL-DTL-43511D standards. They allow for ventilation, UVA and UVB protection and have scratch resistant coatings on all lenses. These tactical goggles fit like an eye shield but protect like a goggle, perfect for multiple situations.
