As a law enforcement NIJ rated ballistic shield manufacturer, Cop Shield USA is designated an Essential Business and we continue to build and ship our ballistic shields.
The Cop Shield
is a new concept whereby all police officers, on an everyday basis
, can have quick access in their patrol car to a lightweight, foldable, ballistic shield which can be used for most situations that can become life threatening at any time:
- for SROs in active shooter situations in schools, colleges and universities;
- court security personnel assigned to protection of judges;
- Church security personnel assigned to protection of Church and its congregation;
- domestic disturbances calls;
- de-escalation, containment and restraint of highly unstable persons
- high risk warrant arrests;
- traffic stops;
- high risk vehicle take downs;
- first responder medics during an active shooter staging scene;
- street level narcotics vehicle deployment and drug labs;
- aircraft flight marshalls;
- Homeland Security officers at Border Protection booths;
- police helicopters;
- marine patrol boats;
- certain SWAT operations;
- many other applications.
Based on its original 2006 patent design and objectives, the Cop Shield in 2018 is the best user friendly "Every Day, Multi-Task" Lightweight Police Ballistic Shield on the market.
If you would like to know more about the numerous police applications for the Cop Shield, you can view our YouTube video, « The Cop Shield Advantage »
The Cop Shield's key objective is to save police officer lives, with its terrible human and financial consequences to their family, their organization, and to society at large.
In order to meet this objective the Cop Shield was designed and manufactured in the US from the ground up for an "Every Day and Multi-Task" use by police officers on patrol.
Production and assembly for our US Patented & Manufactured ‘’Cop Shield’’ has commenced. We have our first 30 shields now available for sale in May.
After 30 shields, additional buyers will be on a First Come/First Serve basis. The current « Special Introductory Price » is $975
In addition, each buyer will receive, free of charge, an Introductory in-house Cop Shield Training Summary. It was prepared by Jim Bremner, a Certified LE Officer Instructor and Trainer.
This ballistic shield has many advantages:
- It's not big and bulky: size is only 18” X 14" when folded and 18” X 28 when deployed, designed for easy access in patrol cars, e.g. the front passenger seat when the police officer is alone on patrol.
- It weighs approximately 8 lbs, which is less than most similar sized shields and it can be stored in a large duty bag or a briefcase.
- It has a new sleek, horizontal design, which provides a "user friendly" handling of the Shield, as opposed to vertical shields.
- Police and Security Forces will be able to have their own graphics on the Cop Shield.
- It provides protection from knifes and other handheld weapons, or objects thrown at the officer.
- A Barrier, i.e. there is now a barrier, a "portable go-to-cover", between the officer and the suspect, which police officers do not have at the moment. The ballistic vest is essential and should be worn; the Cop Shield is complementary, as it provides a barrier against dangerous felons with a gun or other deadly weapon.
