Yes, when on duty. However, there are important things to consider.

Bruce and Jason rightfully pointed out two important realities. Bruce stated that “non-lethal devices are not nearly 100% effective at immobilizing a violent suspect…” He went on to say, “…despite the claims of those who sell these items.”

Yes, the truth is that almost all non-lethal devices fall in the 50% to 70% effectiveness, with the exception of the TigerLight non-lethal defense system flashlight, which has a well documented 96% plus effectiveness as shown in the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department study with 500 deputies over six months as well as many other studies by law enforcement agencies.

Jason pointed out another important face, likely even more important than its “stop rate.” He pointed out that if it is in your patrol car, it might as well be in at the station. I would go a step farther and say that, in many cases, not all, but in many, if it is not in your hand, it might as well be in your car.

The TigerLight is the only non-lethal device with a 96% stop rate. That stop rate was achieved on an average of 2.4 subjects per incident, aptly displaying its multi-subject capability. Extremely important for police officers is that it is the only non-lethal device that enables the instant, simultaneous, synergistic transition between lethal and non-lethal force without having to holster or unholster either and while also having multi-subject capability and the highest documented stop rate of any non-lethal device. It has also had zero fatalities in the past 20 years. In the LASD study it resulted in a 30% drop in the use of force while there was an 11% increase in arrest activity. There was also a 43% reduction in the use of lethal force.

I would say, without hesitation, that any TigerLight makes policing far safer for the police and for their subjects due to these critically important facts and realities. Yes, it is true that we sell the TigerLight, but facts are facts and I would be remiss if I did not tell the truth. We are not one of those who claim 100% effectiveness, but we do claim at least 96% in all the independent studies that have been conducted. You can see more at tigerlight.net.
