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:

  1. active shootersituations in   schools, colleges and universities;
  2. traffic stops;
  3. domestic disturbances calls;
  4. high risk warrant arrests;
  5. high risk vehicle take downs;
  6. Homeland Security officers at Border Protection booths;
  7. multiple assailant disturbance calls;
  8. certain SWAToperations;
  9. first respondermedics during an active shooter staging scene;
  10. containment and restraint of highly unstable persons;
  11. street level narcotics vehicle deployment;
  12. marijuanagrowhouses and    drug labs;
  13. aircraft flightmarshalls;
  14. police helicopters;
  15. court security personnel    assigned to protection of judges;
  16. marine patrol boats;
  17. many other applications.


Based on its original 2006 patent design and objectives, the Cop Shield in 2013 is the best user friendly "Every Day, Multi-Task" Lightweight Police Ballistic Shield on the market.


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 from the ground up for an "Every Day and Multi-Task" use by police officers on patrol.

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 LESS than 7 pounds, which is 35% LESS than similar sized shields.
  • 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 can 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 weapon.
