Cide Shields personal protective mini-shields were invented by law enforcement for law enforcement, specifically for the "Thin Blue Line", security personnel, in-home defense, corporate, church and school safety personnel.  Replacing the single flashlight with a dual high-intensity flood light system that also your face.


Not just a single light in your hand, but two extremely bright lights located behind a transparent protective mini-shield, that protects against those six threats faced by our brave men and women responders.    


Cide Shields provide multiple threat protections against; Ballistic, Explosive, Edged Weapon, Chemical, Animal and Physical attacks for the  head, face and neck.  Immediate protection for our responders as they conduct "routine patrol duties" like; traffic stops, unknown trouble calls, domestic violence situations, bomb threats, active shooters,... 


For those facing the most dangerous situations, yet having the least in protective equipment, Cide Shields provide what is needed.


Standard equipment on each shield is our 2000 Lumen ultra-bright light system, which is located behind the transparent protective material.  Independently wired for increased reliability and assurance there will be light when needed.  


Advanced protections that have been unrealized until now. 

National Institute of Justice Tested


We have conducted both internal and external ballistic testing of our shields against these rounds, at both 90 and 45 degree angles, with zero penetration. 


Significant to our transparent ballistic material is the capture capabilities of fired rounds. Even at 45 degree angles our shields captured rounds fired, lessoning the chances of rounds bouncing off the shield and striking innocent bystanders or fellow responders.  Additionally, captured rounds eliminate the need to search for fired round evidence.


Then we contacted the National Law Enforcement and Corrections Technology Center (NLECTC), who advised our shields did not need to be certified.  We had it done anyway because having a federally approved independent testing lab conduct NIJ ballistic testing is just that important.


We utilized the National Institute of Justice (NIJ) ballistic standard 108.01, and had an accredited testing laboratory conduct the tests and evaluation.  The result of their testing has concluded our Ballistic rating at a NIJ Level II.
