The Republican National Convention: FNH USA Supported Security Efforts
September 28, 2012 at 9:24 AM
FNH USA supported security teams assigned to the recent Republican National Convention in Tampa Florida. The joint security element was equipped with a number of FN 303 and FN 303P less lethal launchers and complete with the accurate fin stabilized projectiles available from FNH USA. Deployed as an option for perimeter security, property protection and crowd control the FN 303 and FN 303P less lethal launcher systems allowed for the accurate deployment of less lethal munitions at close and extended ranges.
FNH USA also sent members of its national training team to provide technical support and training to the team members.
Around the globe, military forces and law enforcement agencies alike are embracing the concept of less lethal technology for civil disorder, correctional institutions, border defense, physical facility security, and force protection, or in any other situation where the control, dispersal and/or neutralization of non-compliant individuals or groups must be accomplished with maximum effectiveness and minimum risk. FN is the world leader in less lethal technology and training. FN has long been a pioneer in the technologies that bridge the gap between firearms and traditional impact, chemical and electro-muscular disruption devices. Today’s less lethal system from FN consists of the carbine-size FN 303 Less Lethal Launcher and the holster-size FN 303P Less Lethal Pistol. Combining exceptional reliability, simplicity, ease of use and point target accuracy at extended distances, the Less Lethal System is an essential component on any military or law enforcement equipment list.
