Crowd Control

The Crowd Control topic focuses in on the difficult task of controlling large groups of people with a limited number of officers and resources. The articles and tips in this section focus on strategies that can help quell a riled up crowd and riot gear — helmets and shields — that will keep them safe in the process. Law enforcement must be prepared for the worst when a controversial verdict is read or a large sports team wins a championship and the celebration spills to the streets.
