Animal Control Shield
Developed for UK police units only as a humane method of controlling dogs or other dangerous animals.
The Animal Control Shield (ACS) is only for use in operations such as drugs raids, where the officer may encounter a dangerous animal. The operator points the ACS at the animal and presses the red button activating the conductive strips. If the dog touches the strips it will receive a severe non-lethal shock. The strips also generate discharge sparks, accompanied by loud crackling noises, which will deter most animals. For added safety, the shield can only be activated with a specialist key.
