“As the landscape of law enforcement evolves, so does the Armor that protects our heroes. Walk with us through the corridors of Chattanooga PD, where Lt. Rusty Morrison offers a glimpse into the alliance with RTS Tactical – a bond forged in Steel and Trust.”
In an era of increasing demands for tactical proficiency and protection among Law Enforcement, the choice of equipment has never been more critical.
Departments across the country are searching for gear that provides optimum protection that is versatile and comfortable. A leading name in this domain is RTS Tactical. Our team recently had an in-depth conversation with Lt. Rusty Morrison, Organized Crime Commander of the Chattanooga Police Department, who has incorporated RTS Tactical’s Level lll+ Rifle Special Threats Shields into his Department’s Operations.
Here’s an analysis of their experience with these products.
Every police department wants equipment that performs when it matters most.
“The department was operationally “satisfied” with the overall performance of RTS Tactical Level III+ Rifle Special Threats Mini Shield.”
The shield withstood rounds from the department’s arsenal in specific testing scenarios, a testament to its resilience and capability.
“Testing and training with newly acquired equipment is an absolute must for Police Department personnel;” discussing this with Lt. Morrison provided unique insight into the performance and efficacy of our RTS Tactical Level III+ Rifle Special Threats Mini Shield™.
While protection is paramount, usability can’t be sidelined. After all, an uncomfortable or unwieldy piece of equipment can hinder operations. The feedback we received highlighted that
“the weight, balance, and maneuverability of the Mini Shields were ideal for a patrol officer.”
Our Mini Shield is offered in three different sizes:
Small: 12 x 18 inches.
Medium: 14 x 24 inches.
Large: 16 x 30 inches.
Adapting to new equipment often requires changes in training protocols and operational routines. Yet, the department’s experience showcased a seamless integration. With the purchase of 70 shields and continuous support from RTS Tactical, Lt. Morrison expressed confidence in making subsequent Mini Shield acquisitions. This sentiment underscores the product’s compatibility with their department’s training paradigm and operations.
Behind every great product is a team offering exemplary service.
Lt. Morrison was “very satisfied” with the communication and support from RTS Tactical, emphasizing the significance of a knowledgeable, responsive, and engaged vendor in the equipment selection process.
Situations will always dictate tactics. RTS Tactical incorporates this in its Design and manufacturing practices, as does Chattanooga Police Department’s SRT. After testing and training with our Mini Shields, Their SWAT team expressed interest in Mini Shields to access small crawl areas such as attic spaces. Specialized Units also mentioned exploring concealable vests, which we manufacture in our facilities in Miami, Florida.
Policing in the 21st century requires cutting-edge equipment that provides optimal protection without compromising usability. RTS Tactical’s Level lll+ Rifle Shields balance both, with a few areas left for potential enhancement. As policing needs continue evolving, so should the tools that serve our law enforcement community. Collaboration between vendors and departments, as seen with RTS Tactical, might be the key to ensuring that evolution.
“Collaborative innovation is the keystone of modern policing. Together, RTS Tactical and Law Enforcement agencies nationwide pledge to safeguard communities with the best the industry has to offer. It’s not just about equipment; it’s about a shared vision and a promise to protect.”
Be safe, train hard and often, and always be fearless!
