In an environment where control is critical, the corrections profession has come a long way from gun towers and nightsticks. While deadly force is still an option in some aspects of corrections today, less lethal tools play a larger role in the way corrections officers respond to potential threats in jails and prisons. These devices are force multipliers that assist facilities in avoiding the use of lethal force against inmates who endanger staff and other inmates.
Less-lethal weapons are broken up into several different categories – you will want to consider each of them, remembering that you’re probably best served with a good mix of tools to serve you under different circumstances.
