MDM – Elite Defense

Wednesday, September 28th, 2011

Elite Defense is repping a new lightweight ballistic shield for uniformed LEOs from Citadel Defense. As you know, this has become a terrible year for officer fatalities, with many being shot in the face and neck.


Designed to stop low velocity handgun rounds, it available in four sizes from an 8lbs shield all the way to a large 20 lbs shield. It includes a 1200 lumens light to disorient an unruly subject. Also available is a camera attachment to collect a record of any incidents.

It’s not designed for use with every traffic stop but rather for times when the “spidey sense” kicks in. However, the larger shields have been employed by individual officers during drug raids while checking confined spaces such as attics and crawl spaces when their heads are most vulnerable.
