Ye seem to be packing a lot in there, which makes me ask, is there anything ye would like added onto all of this? Is there anything yer ever missing?
Not that I can think of off hand. We're fairly well equipped, I wish our MDC software system was upgraded. It's old & can be slow, not web based and clunky to use. I forgot to add, in one of the drawers:
- road flares
- a hobble (nylon strapping to tie a unruly prisoners' feet together)
What’s in the “Active Shooter Kit”?
Its a bag with tourniquets, trauma dressings, gloves, bandages, and some airway adjuncts (bits that help open an airway on an unconscious person), glo sticks, medical scissors, medical tape, etc. I've added two extra M-4 mags as well.
Up front, there is a front facing radar, the front camera, a digital camera, notebooks, ticket book, traffic vests, gloves, wipes, stickers for the kids, hand sanitizer & misc. odds & ends. It's basically an office for 10 hours, everyone sets it up to suit themselves to one degree or another. Behind the cabinets in the back is the radio & camera system hardware boxes, sealed from our prying hands
The new cars have a plastic divider in the cage to keep two prisoners' apart and stop a single prisoner from trying to lie down & use their feet. You'll notice the rear windows have bars too, again, to stop getting kicked out.
These units cost something like $50K over the truck cost for all the tech & gear, we'll run them front line up to 150K miles give or take.
