Facebook Forum: Top 20 must-have tactical gear options

When we asked our Facebook fans which single piece of tactical gear they would add to their police-issued equipment, regardless of cost, we got some great responses, both serious and far-fetched, to say the least.  It was remarkable how many people wanted Chuck Norris on call — and how many departments still aren't issuing body armor or TASERs. While it was difficult to pick through them, we selected 20 of the best (and most humorous) answers. Tell us your favorite, and add your own equipment suggestions in the member comments below! Surefire weapon light. For obvious reasons. - Zachary M. Levine Vest because of the heat... would be nice to cool off once in a 12-hour shift - Paul Sweeney-Hennessy make the M-4 framed .308 semi automatic-rifle with collapse stock standard issue. This will give officers an almost fare chance in a gun fight. - Bruce LaBier Easy Button. - Timothy Polley bullshit detector 3000. - Christopher Lee Adams batons. They are effective and don't take up space on a duty belt. - Robert Hawkins Vision glasses. - Jesse Steve Brown portable radio that worked for more than 60% of the time and provides clear transmissions. Ugh. - Jonathan Bruno gun. Just put them to sleep and let them wake up in the jail cell. - David Moon patrol cars since most of the time we use them for cover. - Ben Hignight vest carrier so it's easier to carry all my crap on patrol. - Tim Barr, it simply is the best option to have in a variety of situations. - Isaac John Gerami Batman duty belt with 007 devices on it. Better yet maybe just the Chuck Norris round house, that handles everything. - Mike Kinzel crystal ball...since its such an inconvenience to ask questions to the important lives of civilians. - Marcelo Pirez video recorder. Lapel mounted. I would want it for personal debriefing and for evidentiary purposes. - Christopher Matthiae armor. Seriously. They still haven't provided any. - Jay Ó Tuathail of those hidden suspenders for my duty belt, to save my back. Injured backs kill more careers than bullets or crashes. - Werkin Formy Paycheck imaging camera/night vision. - Ed Kienzle work alone in a rural area so a second officer to patrol with would be nice. - Matt Wagner pants. - Executive Edge Private Security
