Police work can be dangerous and unpredictable. Responding to active shooter calls can put patrol officers at risk, and delays can result in injury, casualties, or chaos. Many departments practice Immediate Action Rapid Deployment (IARD), a police tactic where first responders actively confront a developing high-risk crisis, as opposed to first responders assembling a cordon around the crisis zone and waiting for special response units like SWAT.
Having a rapid-deployment ballistic panel easily accessible and at the ready for your officers in every vehicle at all times adds an extra layer of readiness and protection to your force.
Transport Partitions with Added Safety
VIPER Shield enhanced vehicle partitions allow you to easily, efficiently equip your patrol officers with additional threat protection. These partitions allow officers to have an NIJ IIIA-rated ballistic shield panel literally at their fingertips for rapid deployment. This helps them be prepared not only for IARD situations but also for the potential uncertainties that can arise during routine traffic stops, warrant service, domestic disputes, and other situations that seem innocuous until a suspect draws a weapon.
Made of ballistic composite material, each 16” x 25” panel weighs 8.5 pounds and has a transparent view port and comfortable Velcro hand/forearm support band. It tucks neatly into a compact housing in the partition immediately behind the driver’s seat and deploys using a T-handle accessible to the driver while seated. The smooth, secure housing prevents road rattle and makes the panel inaccessible to the rear-seat passengers.
Trusted Quality Partitions
If you’re upfitting your fleet’s safety and emergency response vehicle equipment, you know how important it is to use professional quality transport partitions. Cheaply built partitions that use inferior-grade materials can be compromised more easily and won’t last as long as high-grade models. Over the long run, this can put your officers in danger and require more frequent replacement (resulting in budget overages).
The VIPER Shield Rapid Deployment System partition is the latest offering in their trusted, top-quality line of transport partitions. The addition of the ballistic panel helps protect officers outside their vehicles as well as Pro-gard’s products always have protected them inside.
Your fleet vehicles take a beating, standing up to the rigors of nearly constant high-stress operation by a variety of different users. Pro-gard’s partitions are made of smooth, charcoal grey powder-coated steel panels in 14-gauge thickness to withstand violent assaults. They’re easy to clean, resist corrosion, and mount far enough back on the vehicle B-Pillar to maintain full travel and substantial recline of the vehicle seats.
