Showcase: Viper Shield Enhanced Prisoner Transport Partitions

October 18, 2016, Leslie and Associates – ProGard

For nearly half a century, fleets have trusted Pro-gard’s Prisoner Transport Partitions to protect their officers inside the vehicle. Now, with the VIPER™ Shield Rapid Deployment System, our partitions take that protection outside of the vehicle with the officer.

The patented design of the VIPER Shield System releases a conveniently stowed NIJ IIIA Ballistic Shield in seconds from the prisoner compartment, driver side of the partition. This lightweight shield is capable of providing protection for your officers against the uncertainties they face daily because the situations like warranty service, felony stops, domestic disputes, or even simple traffic stops can escalate quickly.

This partition offers the same full travel and substantial recline of the driver’s seat as all of our other Prisoner Transport Partitions do and mounts to the B-pillars do in the same fashion as well.  This partition comes complete with Bucket Seat Protectors and Recessed Panel and is available in all nine different window configurations.
