Mace® Triple Action Police Spray for Civilians
Just how strong is police pepper spray, and why would that kind of force be necessary on the streets?
In the case of the 18-gram Mace® Police Model Tear Gas Pepper Spray with UV Dye, “strong” is an understatement. The main formula is, of course, OC pepper, which, even alone, can cause immediate pain, the inflammation of the soft tissues, temporary blindness, and uncontrollable coughing and choking. This is all thanks to the active ingredient, oleoresin capsicum, which is a substance that is harvested from natural chili peppers.
It is exactly as painful as it sounds. As long as sprayed directly in the face, this chemical alone is usually enough to subdue most criminals. However, as more than a couple of online videos can attest to, some people can fight through the basic effects of pepper spray.
It is entirely possible for some people to fight through OC spray. Police are trained to do it. Some criminals are either naturally resistant to it or just have a very high tolerance for pain and can somehow still operate even under the duress of chemical pain compliance. The influence of certain drugs and narcotics can also boost resistance against OC. This is where police pepper spray strength can make all the difference.
In this particular spray, OC pepper is mixed with CN tear gas. As you may already know, tear gas has about the same effects as pepper spray, only with a lot less swelling. Also, tear gas targets the lachrymal glands (tear production glands) and mucous membranes of the airways, making it a supplementary irritant that covers the areas pepper spray might not have spread to.
This combination of OC and tear gas causes a much more uncomfortable and painful experience than OC alone, ensuring that the targeted criminal is subdued and unable to commit further violence. With the Mace® triple-action police pepper spray, you will have enough of the stuff for 10 one-second bursts, which you can shoot at distances of 8 to 12 feet.
The combination is so effective that it can even cause vomiting and severe nausea. Alone, these chemicals are irritating enough. Combined, they become an instant way to incapacitate targets, no matter how big, aggressive, or inebriated. Even hours after the intensity of the full effects has died down, the mucous membranes and tear glands will continue to feel and react to their effects.
This is why in law enforcement use of pepper spray is limited to active aggressors, which are people who refuse to follow verbal commands from police officers, physically resist apprehension, and at the same time, attempt to harm officers of the law.
You can read about it all in police guidelines called Use of Force Continuum, which is a law enforcement standard that allows police officers to calibrate the appropriate use of force that they can use, based on the nature of the criminal and the situation. Reasonability is a main factor in all of these scenarios. It is not a guide for citizens, but it is a good read if you want to have some idea of how a police officer's tactics might work with regards to the use of force.
Additionally, this police model tear gas pepper spray has a third chemical in the mix: ultraviolet dye. UV dye is used to mark the person that you are spraying. Hours after the incident, as the intensity of the pepper spray is dying down, they will still be marked with the ultraviolet dye, which is going to show up in UV light. If this happens, then they can be positively identified as the person involved in the pepper spraying incident. It is one way to corroborate an incident that involves pepper spray, and it can be very useful in aiding the authorities.
Mace® PepperGard® for the Law-Abiding Citizen
Alternatively, there is the Mace® 10% PepperGard® Police Model Pepper Spray, another law enforcement grade pepper spray. This is a more basic model without the added tear gas and UV dye. However, it carries the same police-strength formula ideal for subduing active aggressors, or in your case, any criminals who may already be eyeing you as potential prey. The unit is just 17 grams and has enough for 10 one-second bursts at distances of 8 to 12 feet.
While it is always better to just avoid encountering criminals and letting the police do their job, the reality is that you can't always rely on law enforcement. The police can't be everywhere all the time. You have to do your part to keep yourself safe. It is not about taking the law into your own hands but self-preservation within the boundaries of the law. You can't always be escorted by the police, but you can always carry police-grade pepper spray.
So, if you are a person whose living and working circumstances force you to sometimes walk the streets late at night or pass through criminal-infested areas, these law enforcement strength pepper sprays are just what you need to keep yourself safe.
Pepper spray laws and restrictions can vary from state to state. Make sure to research before even purchasing any product. It is your responsibility as a responsible buyer and law-abiding citizen to know if you are even allowed to buy and carry pepper spray in the areas where you live and work.
