The standoff with former LAPD officer Christopher Dorner in California earlier this month was certainly a tragic situation. Numerous innocent lives were lost before the situation ended with the suspect barricaded in a home. According to reports, the suspect ended his own life before the home was burned to the ground.
In situations like these it’s crucial that law enforcement has the necessary tools to resolve a situation while minimizing the risk to both officers and civilians.
Though we can’t speculate about the situation in California, we do know that The Rook Armored Critical Incident Vehicle is a tool that gives law enforcement officers the protection they need during these types of dangerous situations. Numerous law enforcement agencies have already discovered the usefulness of The Rook and utilized it and its various attachments for a number of dangerous situations.
