Threats to our society
demand a new level
A threat may be posed, on the one hand, by gunmen who will randomly shoot to injure and kill civilians and policemen within the shortest possible time.
Equally disturbing, on the other hand, is the rapidly increasing threat of terrorists operating alone or in coordination with terrorist organisations, targeting both civilians and police – as recently seen in Paris and Copenhagen.
The threat has therefore escalated drastically both to the civilian population and to those whose duty it is to protect others: our police.
The unpredictable nature of the attacks therefore places not only the deployed special commandos at risk. Police on patrol will often be the first responders arriving at scenes of unrest before all others to protect innocent civilians, risking their own life. Such police have absolutely no protection of their head against firearms.
The potential for danger posed by increasingly complex threatening situations demands continuous development of protection suitable for such applications – as is currently the case for police on patrol:
The unpredictable nature of the terrorist attacks places not only the special commandos at risk. These days, police on patrol will often be the first responders arriving at scenes of unrest before all others to protect innocent civilians, risking their own life. These police need not only bullet-proof vests, but also ballistic protection for the head – the most important and exposed part of the body.
ULBRICHTS Protection has, in close cooperation with units of the police, developed helmets for ballistic protection of especially patrolling police in situations of amok and acts of terror. These helmets offer the same degree of ballistic protection which has until recently been available for the elite special forces only.
These ballistic helmets were developed especially for police on patrol and have now been in use for many years, with general acceptance by users in practical situations.
A proud achievement and motivation to continue developing protection for those who protect others.
