Tactical Shotguns and Ammunition: Vital Equipment for Flexible Response

By: Dr. Martin D. Topper Martin D. Topper Ph.D. Consulting, LLC

Law enforcement is the key to maintaining order in civilized societies. Therefore law enforcement officers should always have the right equipment for the task at hand. Today's tactical shotguns loaded with the latest ammunition are just such equipment and they play an important part in keeping the peace in modern societies. Lately, a number of agencies have begun to completely replace shotguns with rifles. However shotguns and rifles play very different but complimentary roles in law enforcement at the federal, state, local and tribal levels. Both are necessary safety equipment for officers who must respond to and control dangerous situations under extreme pressure.
