Shellback Tactical is proud to announce that the Original Banshee Plate Carrier in Black has been selected by the Plano Police Department (Plano, TX). The Plano Police Department is the 4th largest agency in Texas and located just 30 mins North of Dallas.

For the evaluation. The Plano Police Department put a team together to evaluate plate carriers for the agency. They evaluated approx. 10 potential carriers. After their in depth evaluation they selected the Banshee Plate Carrier for several reasons. Ease of use, the range of officers the carrier would fit, price point, quality and long term durability. They will be issuing and fielding 350 Banshee Plate Carriers to start into their patrol division. The Banshee has also been adopted as their official carrier and will be issued to all new hire officers as well.

Shellback Tactical is happy to have been evaluated and selected. In the current environment of Law Enforcement being targeted, it is great to see another Police agency preparing and investing in their personnel.
