Less Lethal Technologies for Law Enforcement

Less Lethal Technologies for Law Enforcement

Less lethal technology devices are designed to be less likely to cause death when deployed than conventional weapons like firearms, and are used by law enforcement in two primary situations: crowd control and one-on-one suspect apprehension. For each of these situations, technology subcategories exist based on the modalities of the technology, such as chemical, kinetic and conducted energy.
