    We Go Where the Big Shields Can’t.

    A smaller, stronger, lighter and more versatile police barrier protects the centerline of an officer at traffic stops, sporting events, in bathroom stalls, on buses, in mobile homes, under beds, in closets, on boats, airplanes, and on motorcycles.

    Realistic De-Escalation That Works In The Field

    Conventional de-escalation tools don’t protect the officer. Our NIJ Level 3 protective barriers stop the 1st attack on an officer. Our safety-focused de-escalation training then allows that officer to de-escalate violence while protected when possible.

    Current Events Require New Tools & Unconventional Training

    Officers are getting killed at an alarming rate and violence is getting worse. The Vector provides a solution to both problems utilizing Special Forces principles. Lessons learned from officers who were attacked and shot at are the core of our training program developed by a Special Forces Medic (18D). Each purchase comes with electronic training. In-person training is also available.

Protect Officers while De-Escalating

The Best De-Escalation And Active Shooter Training In The Industry.


The Vector Protective Barrier

The Vector Protective Barrier

The “Vector” is a fully patented, lightweight, single-arm-secured NIJ Level 3 portable protective barrier that acts as a shield for the officer and a safety barrier for the public.

It was invented and patented by a Special Forces Green Beret medic (18D) who instructed at West Point. Vector’s tactics come from this medic’s knowledge of tactical medicine combined with “lessons learned” in the field by officers who have been attacked and shot at and are the basis for the unconventional training program Vector provides with all purchases.

Texas Patrol Officer Testimonial

The Vector’s success is measured in thousands of successful deployments and countless untold avoided tragedies. A Vector does not protect the entire body of an officer like conventional riot or SWAT shields. It protects the face, neck, and upper chest – the exact locations where conventional body armor fails to cover. The smaller Vector deploys everywhere the big shields can’t, like in a car, at a traffic stop, in a mobile home, bus, airplane, or attic.

Wounded Officer Testimonial

The Vector stops the first attack on an officer and then allows that officer to respond and de-escalate violence, when possible, while protected. It has done this successfully countless times against guns, blades, bats, bricks, aggressive animals, and other types of assaults.

Veteran LEO Testimonials

The Vector Outperforms Conventional SWAT, Riot, and Patrol Shields

We keep our training secret to protect officers, but we share our saves. . .

The Vector stopped a machete swung at an officer in Massachusetts where the officer was not injured, and the suspect was arrested with no shots fired.

The Vector stopped a gun aimed at an officer at a Fort Bliss guard gate where the officer was not harmed, and the would-be shooter was arrested with no shots fired.

The Vector stopped an officer from being beaten with a chair at a party in Texas. The officer was not harmed, and the suspect was arrested with no shots fired.

The Vector allowed a federal task force agent to gain entry into a residence after a failed breach as the large shield would not fit. The officer stopped a man before he reached his gun to shoot the officer with no shots fired.

Here are just some of the benefits the Vector will provide your department:

  • NIJ Level III ballistic protection
  • Thousands of documented successful deployments
  • Officers saved. Attackers arrested. Civilians protected. No shots fired
  • Less-than-lethal
  • Deploys at any Level in use of force continuum
  • Electronic training included. In-person and train-the-trainer training are also available.
  • Less use of lethal force means fewer lawsuits
  • Fewer officer injuries
  • Press release for department in local media and Police 1
  • Participation in Vector’s national autism awareness program
