When available SmartRounds™
projectiles along with standard 12 gauge shotguns or our 18mm gas powered launchers
are designed to fill a critical gap in the use of force and to provide law enforcement
officers the safest, most effective tools in a variety of applications.
These weapons help officers gain control
of the suspect's fear, encouraging them to surrender, de-escalating the situation and
reducing the number of use-of-force incidents. If you have to shoot, you have multiple rounds at the ready. It also gives
the law enforcement officer a choice depending on the situation. He or she can use deadly
force if necessary, or effective non-lethal force if the situation permits.
In a riot situation LEOs armed with our SR18
gas launchers, with non-lethal yellow magazines, indicates to the crowd that law enforcement is here to keep the peace, but
is not here to use unnecessary force or escalate the situation.
