Police Officer’s Testimonial – “Now convinced this is the Less Lethal Tool available”Scott Brent
An Officer, Texarkana Police Department, SWAT TEAM LEADER
Said his first initial thoughts of the JPX Strike Force LE Pepper Gun were not for him, or his tactical team, stating he would stay with his issued TASER!
He was forced by his chief in taking the class, (reluctantly took the class) however Six days after taking the class several officers went to a disturbance call at a local store for a shoplifter. The disturbance involved a male subject (suspect) on high PCP
When officers attempted to take the suspect into custody, the suspect threw one officer nearly through a plate glass window.
A second Ofc. deployed his JPX Strike Force LE Pepper Gun, which incapacitated the suspect almost immediately and the suspect was then taken into custody without further injuries.
From that point on, The reluctant Ofc. said, he’s 100 percent satisfied with the JPX Strike Force LE Pepper Gun and refuses to use the TASER any longer. The JPX Strike Force LE Pepper Gun is now a utilized tool on his team. The department officer’s now all carry the pepper gun. Further stating that a taser is only issued to Sergeants and are normally kept in the trunk of their vehicles.
