Cell extractions are a dangerous part of the job for anyone working in prisons.

PPSS has created a Cell Extraction Vest that is designed to withstand forceful blows from any piece of weaponry an inmate can use.

When PPSS decided to create such crucial piece of personal protective equipment, it was paramount to first discuss all design and performance issues with Correctional Emergency Response Teams (CERT), Tactical Support Units (TSU) and other serving Corrections and Prison Officers tasked with responding to incidents, riots, cell extractions, mass searches or disturbances in prisons, possibly involving uncooperative or violent inmates.
