Using a drag strap for downed officer extraction

 
Submitted by:
Chief Jeff Chudwin

Chief Jeff Chudwin of the Olympia Fields (Ill.) Police Department, who also serves as President of the Illinois Tactical Officers Association, recommends a simple piece of equipment — the drag strap — to be included in every officer’s gear. A drag strap can be easily rolled up and placed into an officer’s pocket and used to remove a downed officer or an injured civilian from the field of fire.
