Israel Weapon Industries, an SK Group company, announced on 16 July it is expanding its portfolio with a comprehensive riot control solution.
Offering flexible approaches to maintaining public order and safety while employing minimum levels of force, the solution – as intended – is perfectly suited to operational deployment in law enforcement, military, prison service and special forces riot control applications.
IWI's riot-control solution, tailored to clients’ needs, includes conceptual and operational methodologies, defensive products such as tactical anti-stab uniforms, anti-stab and bulletproof vests, tactical helmets, shields, multipurpose grenades – offensive tools such as multi-shot 12 gauge shotguns, 37-38mm and 40mm launchers and munitions, drones and tactical courses for all levels.
“Civil disorder, characterized by extremists violently demonstrating, or even a legal and peaceful demonstration which escalated into an uncontrollable riot, can result in property damage and human casualties. There is a great importance to handle the situation with minimum use of force and lethal equipment to keep the public safe and retrieve order,” explained Ronen Hamudot, VP Marketing and Sales at SK Group. "Only a well-structured methodology of proper use of law enforcement techniques, procedures, and tools will ensure the order and reestablish the confidence to the citizens".
Hamudot further observed that IWI’s vast experience and proven track record as a solutions provider for military forces and law enforcement agencies enables the company to create a holistic solution that gives authorities the effective means to control a riot while minimizing the use of force and avoiding unnecessary casualties. “As the pandemic continues to spread around the world, and with its effect on different aspects of our lives, there is a greater need for such a solution to keep the civilians safe,” he stated.
