Law Enforcement and Armed Forces

The Tactical Advantage of Attending the SHOT Show

The SHOT Show outfits law enforcement, SWAT, armed forces, special ops, and armed security agencies with the best equipment, specialized training and industry connections to improve performance and safety for your personnel. It’s the most comprehensive resource for identifying new equipment and sharing best practices with other industry professionals.

Equipping officers before they arrive on scene.

Intense new challenges are facing law enforcement agencies, and it’s important to get it right. Find out how other teams and communities are addressing less lethal force options and deadly force issues within their agencies. Discuss in-field challenges, participate in specialized training, and most importantly, explore the 186,000 net sq. ft. of exhibits dedicated to law enforcement needs (630,000 total net sq. ft.).
