Justifying the Cost
- The added cost of the shield is certainly within the norm for the options requested by CPD.
The new shields have two custom upgrades that only CPD required. the first is a custom blended acrylic that enhances peripheral vision in multitudes and pinpoint optical zoom when viewing directly forward.
This new technology allows for the officer to focus on just one individual directly in front of him/her and only that subject. The advantage of such an option is that it puts the officer within his/her comfort zone by giving the perception that the subject is alone. This enhances the officer's ability to conduct themselves in a politically correct manner .
The second option is the new "Rose Colored" option along with the peripheral "Multiplier" that gives the officer the perception of being amongst thousands of officers.
The cost is actually a deal but the only disadvantage will be the 4" x6" Mayor rahm emanuel decal on the shield,the adhesive tends to drip down and the officer's footing may become affixed to one spot.
The basis of this technology is the new federal mil spec requirements used to conform with
the obama administration Rules of Engagement strategy.
Whatever this commentator is having, we'll have two and we got the next round for the bar.
