What is the Value of the DSM Safety Product?
It's always a sad day when we lose one of our own, but when it is a blue on blue we have two casualties one physical and one psychological. Our company just recently released this new officer safety equipment at TREXPO West (POLICE Magazine trade show) and received a "Best of Show Award" for most innovative officer safety product. Our studies have show that we lose an officer to a blue on blue incident approx. every thirteen to eighteen months somewhere in the U.S. Based on this knowledge we designed an effective way of identifying plainclothes officers 360 degrees during a critical incident. We are currently in the process of outfitting two elite detective units in LAPD and a few other smaller departments. Several individual purchases around the country, have been made from local police officers to Dept. of Homeland Security officers.

Will I remember to deploy the DSM Safety Banner after a critical incident?
Not unless you train with your banner, Sgt. Mike Lessman advises that once your adversary is down, seek cover, tactically reload and deploy your banner, this should be practiced in your range training sessions so that if you are faced with a critical incident, you will revert back to your training.
