Collapsible Batons & Expandable Batons
Collapsible batons have always been one the most important pieces of law enforcement equipment. Going back almost 200 years, the police baton has been used as a defensive weapon and a compliance tool by public safety professionals.
Batons have evolved over time. Construction materials, baton length and features have become more advanced. Expandable batons have grown in popularity given how easy they are to carry.
Collapsible batons come in different lengths, which range from 16 inches to usually 24 inches, but some are even 36 inches long. Most law enforcement officers utilize a 21-inch baton as part of their duty uniform.
Popular Security Batons & Baton Holders
The ASP 21” Expandable Baton is a commonly approved baton for law enforcement agencies. This federally tested baton is “virtually indestructible.” The premium materials, foamed vinyl grips and impact-forged tip are driving forces that makes this the No. 1 choice of police approved batons.
Police need to be able to secure their batons onto their duty belts in positions that are easily accessible. With the amount of movement that is required when a police officer is in pursuit of a suspect or defending themselves, having a baton that also expands quickly can make a difference if the mission is a success.
To make sure the baton is secure and easily reachable, many safety officers use the ASP Rotating Sidebreak Scabbard. This ASP baton holder is designed for 21-inch expandable batons, rotates to seven different positions and can be locked upright on the duty belt.
