CAPTAIN AMERICA SHIELDS REALLY EXIST IN LAW ENFORCEMENT
The Vector Counter-Ambush, Active Shooter, EDP Response & De-Escalation Centerline Shield System
What does the Vector Ballistic Shield stop?
The Vector Centerline Shield fills the gap between body armor and larger more cumbersome entry or riot shields. It is lightweight and mobile NIJ Level III centerline cover. It stops knives, bricks, bats, dogs, needles as well as shotgun rounds, rifle rounds to include 5.56, 7.62 & 5.56 Green Tips plus all handgun rounds. It will even stop an angry ex-wife during a domestic plus you can serve coffee on it.
Isn't the Vector Ballistic Shield too small?
It's small size is its best attribute! The Vector Centerline Shield, when combined with a helmet and set of chest plates offers the same square inches of protection as a full sized SWAT shield with a high ballistic rating and mobility so you can reach your objective faster. Faster OpTempo is a thing. Your SWAT, riot and patrol shields suck and are left in the trunk half the time. We all know it. The Vector Centerline Shield stores in the front of a patrol vehicle and can be deployed while driving and during traffic stops. It gets around corners, under beds, around public bathroom stalls and in attics. It goes wherever the larger shield can't. It goes down subway and bus aisles, on airplanes, on motorcycles, in boats, on bicycles, on ATV's, in backpacks, on slings for foot and horse mounted patrols and anywhere your computer bag can go. IT GOES EVERYWHERE YOU GO. Try that with that old clunker SWAT, riot or patrol shield that's sitting in your trunk right now. Good luck with that.
Is the ballistic shield too heavy?
If you think 8 lbs is too heavy, you better not pick up a rifle, eat some Wheaties and hit the gym. The Vector Centerline Shield is made with a 3-point retention system that distributes the weight evenly, allows for easy mag changes and to allow for hands free operation. It deploys in seconds. Our team girls can carry them indefinitely when instructed properly. Man Up Mary.
How much is a Vector Ballistic Centerline Shield?
How much is an officer's life worth? We don't want to hear budgets. We offer the least expensive Level 3 shield on the market. Each shield purchase comes with training. We offer a life-time warranty on the ballistic plate. You can use SIMS and UTM's on our Shields and it will not void the warranty. Ask another shield company to match what we do and they will tell you to go pound sand. We don't sell sh$%. Our shields are meant to last and protect you. The inventor is a veteran Special Forces medic. He makes things "private-proof" so we won't be back selling you another shield in 5 years like EVERY OTHER COMPANY ON THE MARKET. You may eventually need new straps if you keep flexing those big muscles with the shield on though... $1,675 gets you an entire Vector Centerline Kit with training and a lifetime warranty on the plate. No other company will do this. They want to resell you the same subpar equipment every 5 years. YUCK & shame on them for taking advantage of you guys. & yes, we lease to own 10 kits are more. All departments are approved.
Your Ballistic shield looks cool and but do you have any documented saves?
Yes, Lots! We have saves against knives, guns, dogs, people and even a machete. Yes, some whack job jumped out of a shower and attacked an officer in New Bedford, MA with a machete. The officer stopped the machete with the Vector as he was able to deploy the shield instantly against the attacker. A normal SWAT Shield would have been in the trunk. That officer is alive today. That's what we care about.
Doesn't your ballistic shield look like a Captain America Shield?
Yes! Thank you! Kids need Super Heroes again and with our active shooter disorienting day/night operations de-escalation shield covers officers win the hearts and minds of the community and youth WHILE protecting their head, neck and chest. We have clients at the highest levels to include US Marshals, Border Patrol SOG, State Police agencies, State DOJ tasks forces, DOC's, and a sh%&-ton, yes a SH&*-ton of local police and sheriff's departments across the country. Get over your ego and give a new tool and training that is saving officers at all levels a chance. We guarantee if you have reservations about the shield, after a demo, you will say you have uses for it.

VECTOR POLICE SHIELDS ARE BEING USED BY THE FEDS AND HAVE SAVED POLICE OFFICER LIVES
An officer protected behind a Vector Shield can often immediately de-escalate a deadly attack from a threat with non-lethal means of a shield and then has the option to resort to a less than lethal force option such as a Taser, thus moving down the use of force continuum instead of escalating up to deadly force in many situations. This has never before been done in law enforcement.
Our training system and shield has been proven to work in documented police reports at the federal, state and local levels.
Vector Shield Training is based on lessons-learned and current events. Officers are instructed in tactics that are custom-tailored to apply to their particular department, agency and region.
Our counter-ambush and active shooter de-escalation shield training is the best in the industry and helps officers better respond to dangerous situations.
We have references available from Federal, State and Local agencies upon request. We service the US Marshal Service, the DEA, DHS SOG, BORSTAR, MRT, BORTAC, several state police agencies including the MA State Police STOP and VFAS teams, the MADOC and the Oregon DOJ as well as the CT State Police Undercover Narcotics Unit. We service a myriad of local police and sheriff's departments across the United States.
Unlike larger SWAT and Entry Shields, the Vector Shield stores in the front of a patrol vehicle so it is easily and quickly accessed.
The Vector Shield was voted Best Product of Show at the 2018 New England Narcotic Enforcement Officers Association Awards.
The Vector Law Enforcement Shield fills the gap between body armor and larger more cumbersome entry and riot shields.
It is lightweight and mobile NIJ Level III cover. The Vector Shield immediately de-escalates threat by stopping the 1st attack against an officer and allows an officer to then respond per his or her department's SOP while protected behind ballistic cover.
The Vector Shield is not designed to be used as a full body shield. It protects the hydraulics of an officer so he or she can move quickly while having his or her head, neck and chest protected behind NIJ Level III ballistic armor. When used in conjunction with a chest plate, the Vector Shield offers the same coverage as a full-sized SWAT Shield at a higher ballistic rating with mobility.

The Shield and its tactics were invented by a Special Forces 18D (Green Beret medic) who was also a West Point combatives instructor and in charge of Steven Seagal's close protection team.
Entry shields are heavy and awkward. You will never get a large entry shield in an attic, around a tight corner, down a narrow hallway, on a bus or plane or deployed at a moment's notice at a felony traffic stop.
The Vector Shield is deployed as a riot, entry, special operations and patrol shield. The tactics are team-specific. This makes the Vector widely used by every type of law enforcement across the United States.
If a fugitive apprehension suspect is firing rounds at an officer, that officer needs mobile cover in front of his or her face. In a riot situation, officers need Level III ballistic protection. When peeking in an attic, a Vector Shield should be placed first.
The tactics for the Vector Shield are based in physics, human anthropological responses and tactical medicine.
This is light-weight, single-arm-secured Level III ballistic armor. It will defeat multi-hit close range 7.62, 5.56 Green Tip, shotgun and all handgun rounds.
A protected officer is in a better state of mind and is able to act in a more controlled manner and is less likely to accidentally shoot civilians. This is especially important around children and in schools. Vector Training helps officers better respond to dangerous situations If a child has what may appear to be an airsoft, but an officer is not sure, this allows the officer to make that distinction in the safest manner possible while protected behind ballistic cover.
An officer protected behind a Vector Shield can often immediately de-escalate a deadly attack from a threat with non-lethal means.
Use of a Vector shield has the option to resort to a less than lethal force option such as a Taser, thus moving down the use of force continuum instead of escalating up to deadly force in many situations. This has been proven to work in documented police reports at the federal, state and local levels. If a threat will not de-escalate, an officer always has the option to respond per his or her department SOP to stay alive. A Vector Shield stops the first attack and it is up to the officer to respond how he or she chooses. In documented police reports where Vector Shields have been deployed by officers, officers consistently choose the least offensive option they have available, thus de-escalating instead of escalating up to deadly force in many situations.
At $1,650, your full shield kit comes with a carrier bag, lighting system, cover, sling, training and a lifetime warranty on the ballistic plate. No other shield offers Level 3 ballistic protection, a lifetime warranty and training.
