In 2003, CRT Less Lethal recognized the need to bridge the gap between law enforcement operators, administrators, medical personnel and scientists in the forensic community. Objective independent data from structured, practical testing has allowed us to develop forensic testing protocols for less-lethal law enforcement tools. The results combined with our extensive field experience are used for expert witness casework and creating training programs for agencies all over the US and abroad (including the United Kingdom, Belgium, Canada, and the Netherlands).

Seattle Demo of New 40mm Impact Round From Security Devices International
CRT Demos New Less Lethal Round for Local Agencies
On November 30th, the anniversary of the 1999 WTO riots in Seattle, CRT LL demonstrated a new 40mm impact round now available to law enforcement. Local police agencies joined us at the range to see our three phases of testing used to evaluate less-lethal impact munitions:
Phase one-Accuracy, consistency and volume displacement (Ballistic Soap)
Phase two-Ballistic gelatin testing
Phase three-Wound profiling with volunteers
The BIP (Blunt Impact Projectile) or the StriKER round is marketed by SDI. The projectile applies crush zone technology to disperse the impact energy over a greater area on the subject increasing effectiveness (pain compliance) and reducing injury potential. One of the SDI team members volunteered to be impacted by the round to contribute to our wound profile database.
The demo was also featured by Parella Lewis and Washington’s Most Wanted.
CRT LL continues its core mission to evaluate and test products to ensure that operators and departments have a better understanding of the actual effects of less lethal tools. For further information on evaluation, testing, and training related to Less-lethal systems, contact us, contact us.
