Soft Extraction Shield:
"The control and restraint of violent subjects is difficult enough when they are in an open environment and the officer has the ability to disengage and de-escalate a confrontation.
When violent confrontation takes place in a closed environment such as a prison cell or a room, the risk of injury to the officer and the subject is greatly increased."
Sgt. Corey Allen P.S.R.T
(The Queensland Police Journal May 1998)
The Soft Extraction Shield is the ideal way to secure a person with the minimum force.
Features 12 way rear grip, knife resistant yet easy to use.
