Baton & Expandable Batons
Besides firearms, police carry intermediate weapons such as batons when out on patrol. Batons can be used as a compliance tool, for blocking attacks and even breaking windows when rescuing victims. Over the decades, the baton’s construction material, lengths and features have evolved to match today’s threats. There are two styles of batons, expandable batons and non-expandable batons.
Popular Police & Security Batons
The collapsible police baton comes in a variety of lengths ranging from 12 to 36 inches and is a required part of a police officer’s duty rig. Approved expandable batons may vary based on agency and location, but a commonly approved police baton is the ASP 21” Expandable Baton. This retractable nightstick is virtually indestructible, easy-to-carry and perfect for intermediate force. On top of that, this retractable police baton serves as a visual deterrent and provides the leverage needed for locks and holds.
When a side handle baton is needed, many police and security professionals choose the Monadnock 24” STS Side Handle Baton. This security baton is constructed from super-strong polycarbonate which won’t warp or dent and comes with a lifetime warranty. This police nightstick measures 24” long and is designed with the patented Trumbull Stop on the end of the side handle.
During riot control situations, carrying a riot baton becomes necessary. Riot batons are typically rounded at the ends to prevent unnecessary injuries and are made of dense hardwood such as hickory to avoid shattering. A popular self defense baton that’s used for crowd control is the Galls 36” Hardwood Riot Baton. This riot stick features high-grade ash construction, double grooved grips and a 36-inch length to keep assailants at a distance.
