Abstract
Protective equipment for police riot squads has always been an area of interest and importance. It is imperative that police officers are properly protected from thrown objects, swung objects and anything else that may be encountered. Constable Monique Stenhouse, formerly of the Canadian Police Research Centre worked closely with Mr. Peter Durocher, equipment specialist, for Valiquette Sports in Hull, Quebec. Mr. Durocher works with the RCMP Tactical Troops; consequently, he had much expertise to offer. He was instrumental in choosing existing sporting equipment he felt would be light, flexible, and yet offer the protection needed. He then had some of this equipment altered to suit police needs. Constable Stenhouse then worked with the Canadian police community to have this protective equipment field tested. The overall results were positive, but as one would expect, there too were some negative comments.
