Law Enforcement

    Police officers and riot police require personal protective equipment that keeps them comfortable in versatile conditions and situations. Whether they encounter intense weather, harmful toxins or undesirable liquids, their personal protective equipment (PPE) needs to offer protection and comfort without restricting freedom of movement.

    DESIGNED TO PROTECT

    PPE with Gore protective fabrics has been rigorously tested to ensure it performs and protects as intended in a range of scenarios.

    Regular and Patrol Police

    Police officers work in constantly changing conditions. They are sometimes outside for long periods of time in all kinds of weather, sometimes in the station. They have a range of activities from strenuous or active to sedentary. Therefore, they need breathable weather protection which is comfortable for all day wear in various different situations.

    Riot Police

    Police officers and units deployed at demonstrations and other public order incidents need durable protection against inclement weather, burning liquids or caustic chemicals.

    Special Forces

    Special forces of the European police services require a wide range of functional clothing: camouflage outfits, flexible systems, high-tech observation systems, or dry suits for maritime units.

    Special Units

    Individual protective clothing systems and footwear are required for special units. This includes bike-mounted patrol officers, river and harbour police, mountain police, dog handlers, helicopter crews and other specialists.
