Cide Shields are a newly patented personal protective mini-shield device invented by law enforcement for law enforcement. Specifically designed to provide immediate ballistic protection for the "Thin Blue Line", security personnel, home defense and school safety administrators, while replacing the flashlight with a dual high-intensity flood light system.
Cide Shields provide multiple threat protections including; Ballistic, Explosive, Edged Weapon, Chemical, Animal and Physical attacks for the head, face and neck. Immediate cover designed to protect our uniformed law enforcement responders as they conduct "routine patrol duties" like traffic stops, unknown trouble calls, answer domestic violence situations,... It is our uniformed patrol and security personnel who potentially face the most dangerous situations yet have the least in protective equipment.
Cide Shields personal protective mini-shields have further been designed to replace single flashlights currently being used with a dual high-intensity flood light system. Standard equipment on each shield is our 2000 Lumen ultra-bright light, which are independently wired for increased reliability.
Cide Shields allow all first incident responders; including school personnel, home defense, law enforcement and security personnel, 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.
