Recent attacks on homeland security professionals in countries around the world have all highlighted a need for this type of personal protective equipment (PPE).

Do you remember the outrageous attack of an inmate, brutally slashing a correction officer at Rikers Island? This well documented assault was just one of many. Those serving our countries and protecting us, our infrastructure and events are all at risk every day.

Slashing is now a work-related risk for homeland security professionals we hear about frequently. The types of attacks vary a lot. Some attacks may be committed by someone who is trained and skilled, and others may accidentally slash limbs in a furious attack.

  • In the USA, the FBI conducted a survey in 2013 on the number of officers assaulted with knives/blades. These were higher than the amount of attacks using firearms. This number has increased year on year up to the present day.
  • Correctional officers are involved in the highest amount of non-fatal violent encounters than any other occupation. (2013 Correctional Officer Wellness and Safety Literature Review)
  • There are approximately 2,000 correctional staff member injuries annually due to violence against officers by inmates. Many of which involve blades, such as razor blades, sharpened broken off pieces of ceramic, glass or mirrors and similar edged weapon. (National Institute of Justice in 2007)
There is also the risk of accidental injuries during forced entry operations. It is very underreported occupational risk, but not to be underestimated by operational teams, such as SWAT and other similar units.
