The SMART (Standard Multiple Application Response Tool) Baton looks at first glance like a typical black, high-impact plastic, side-handle baton, but look again. The side handle contains a 0.75-ounce canister of OC (pepper) spray, with an effective range of 12 to 15 feet. The short end of the baton houses a high-quality LED tactical flashlight, and if you unscrew the strike portion of the baton, beneath it is a vehicle glass-break point. You can also customize the strike portion with different lengths, weights and shapes; it even comes with a belt carrier. (201-832-7779,

Galco Kydex StrYker Holster
New for 2011, this hand-formed Kydex adjustable belt holster from Galco is designed for Glock, Sig, 1911 and S&W M&P models, and offers dual adjustment screws for solid firearm retention, as well as an adjustable belt clip that can be set for belts as narrow as 1.25 inches.

Buck CSAR-T Responder Knife
Designed with LEO and rescue personnel in mind, the CSAR-T Responder knife combines several emergency tools in a highly capable TOPS/Buck 3.5-inch blade. Just to the rear of the knife’s tough G10 handles is an integrated glass breaker and protected seatbelt cutter.

Springfield Custom Shop Harrison Sight Option
Created in answer to popular demand, this is a new option available on Springfield Armory guns. Built by Harrison, this optional sight is offered for LE departments that want a fixed sight for the TRP Operator (which comes standard with an adjustable unit). The design, which provides an excellent sighting channel, is sturdy enough to use for cycling the slide against a table or other hard surface if the user is unable to use both hands.

Patrol Trauma Pak
The Trauma Pak from Pelham Training is designed to provide officers in the field with a handy and portable lifesaving kit. It is small enough to be carried in the trauma plate pocket on most concealable body armor—rather than the trunk of a cruiser where it will do little good. Starting at just $24, the kit contains a tourniquet, wound-packing gauze, and chest and abdomen seals. Two enhanced versions offer either HALO chest seals or QuikClot gauze for additional cost.

The Hogue “PowerSpeed” automatic retention lock is released by downward pressure from the thumb while grasping the grips. The thermoformed rig is a complete kit that can be easily converted from a paddle holster to a belt holster in a matter of minutes. (800-438-4747,

Century Arms Saiga-12S
Restricted to LE use only, the Saiga-12S EXP-01 12-gauge shotgun offers LE officers a highly capable tactical shotgun. Based upon the Kalashnikov rifle, the Saiga-12S feeds from a detachable box magazine in either four- or eight-round capacities and employs an adjustable gas system to ensure it functions reliably with a wide range of 2¾- and 3-inch shotshells. The 18.9-inch barrel is smoothbore, and the recoil pad-equipped polymer buttstock is designed to fold along the left side of the shotgun for added compactness. (800-270-2767,
