The Current Challenges Facing Public Order Units
NEW TOOLS FOR NEW CHALLENGES
THE APPEARANCE OF LAW ENFORCEMENT as a Guardian, not gladiator
One of the most effective new tactics in de-escalation is presenting law enforcement as non-oppositional in their appearance; as a guardian, not a gladiator. Which is why we strongly suggest that agencies invest in low-profile protective solutions. Police users now have the option of deploying with discreet bodily protection that is low-profile, as opposed the traditional Robo-Cop style protective gear. This new style of protective equipment can in itself contribute to de-escalation by presenting a non-aggressive posture to the public. Additionally, with every move being filmed, and every interaction scrutinized, the reality of what is transpiring can be ‘spun’, regardless of what actually transpired. Quite simply, optics can override facts.
Equipment manufacturers have made impressive developments in designing gear that can keep police users safe while presenting a non-aggressive posture to the public. Our choice of manufacturer, and leader in this development, is DEFILADE Protection Systems, who provides discrete protection solutions that combine cutting-edge D3O® impact protection in a breathable stretch base layer build specifically for the law enforcement market.

DEFILADE Protection Systems’ Discrete Deployment System (DDS) is a full body protection solution that preserves the police user’s full range of movement and maneuverability. Rampart carries three product lines of DEFILADE DDS. All three lines provide extensive protection to your extremities and vital areas, and each have their own features built to suit different requirements.
The PG1 line is a lightweight protection garment built for breathability and maneuverability. It features perforated material that provides long term comfort for users who may be active during their shift. The PG2 is a 4-way stretch jersey that comes with upgraded back protection and ribcage protectors. And finally, the FR-PG3 top and bottom offers the same blunt impact protection and is made with fire resistant material. Rampart can work with you to help determine which model best suits your unique requirements.

Purpose built modern public order helmets
"Modern head protection built for public order use has many facets and features built specifically to address the threats and environments of a riot."
The P100N helmet from Schuberth combines multiple layers of aramid composite with an EPS foam backing. When the helmet is attacked, the exterior aramid fiber layers delaminate (or separate), dissipating some of the force before it reaches the interior EPS foam. The process of delamination also means that any damage to the helmet is localized and ensures that the protective ability of the helmet will not be compromised after a single impact. The aramid composite also ensures the highest level of stab protection in the industry. The interior of the helmet is made up of specialty EPS foam that further dissipates the impact by greatly reducing the peak spike of energy to the head and brain.
The P100N also protects officers from new and different classes of weapons. The helmet is coated in a flame and chemical resistant lacquer, and the LPA version of the helmet comes complete with laser protection that can be deployed up and down as needed. It also integrates with the Avon HM50 to provide seamless respiratory protection from harmful airborne agents.
P100N BUYING GUIDE
The Schuberth P100N comes in a variety of models with multiple options and accessories. Our new buying guide gives you a quick breakdown of the different models at a glance. Rampart can help you source the right helmet for your agency.
