Attending the Advanced Law Enforcement Rapid Response Training (ALERRT) Conference in San Marcos, TX, we visited with a number of different department members who stated they were keenly aware of the need for all officers to have some sort of Self Aid / Buddy Aid kit when entering the hot zone. However, current department cutbacks made it cost prohibitive to look at even the most basic trauma kits that Rescue Essentials offers for individual patrol officers. We went to work with the team to come up with an affordable IFAK in order to solve this problem. After multiple rounds of modifications based on input from NTOA members who tested the kit, we landed on the Patrol Officer Pocket Trauma Kit (POPTK).
The Patrol Officer Pocket Trauma Kit includes:
1 SWAT-T® Tourniquet
1 Z-Fold Dressing
1 Pair Nitrile Gloves
1 Duct Tape, 36"
The SWAT-T® is a cost efficient and effective tourniquet, especially in a buddy aid situation. When combined with the Z-Pack dressing that can be packed into a penetrating injury, the SWAT-T® does double duty as a very impressive compression bandage, and duct tape provides the ability to hold dressings or even improvised chest seals. These items come vacuum packed and can be easily and quickly removed, allowing rapid treatment.
Imagine being able to outfit a 100 man department with individual trauma kits for less than $2700! It is no longer necessary to send officers into the hot zone without the simplest of tools to save their life, or the life of their fellow officer. Order one for a sample today and see for yourself.
Dimensions: 3.75"W x 5"H x 2"D (vacuum sealed)
Weight: 6.5 oz

I have had 2 of these for 2+years, I carry one everyday just in case, just ordered 3 more as stocking stuffers, I was disappointed in the way they are being packed, my original 2 looked neat like the picture, nice smooth square package. The 3 I just received look like a vacuum sealed wad of newspaper, with zero shape or form, the plastic is wrinkled to the point it's difficult to even read te label inside. And the bunched up shape make it much less pocketable. I understand this is a price point item and its form over function but I would gladly have paid $1 more to have them packed like the original ones I gave. These are great kits and love my original ones, the packing on these new ones I have went from completely satisfied to considering investing in a vacuum sealer. Michael, We are searching for your order, and once found we will rush out replacement kits and a return label. We apologize - those kits should look like they always have, and we will make it right, as is our policy. Please contact us: firstname.lastname@example.org
Extremely cost-effective to buy in bulk
I have ordered many of these for my guy's and they are great!! The only issue we have come across is after a little time the pack losses it's vacuum seal. When this happens it becomes bulky in our cargo pockets. Other than that great to have on hand. All my Assets carry these on their person.
Bought this for my range (shooting) bag. I hope I never need it, but it is the perfect size to keep in one of the outside pockets. Recommend.
I ordered this just to check it out for the department, I'm not really satisfied with the overall contents. The price is amazing but you get what you pay for.
Every Police Officer, Security Guard, EMS etc should carry one of these.
I have bought these for my USFS fire crew for the last two years. We work (often fatigued) in the center of the central California bug kill tree zone with sharp tools and falling trees. All five of us carry these instead of a large FAK in case someone gets a bad injury to await bringing up the trauma kit. They hold up well in a pack or cargo pocket without the pouch and are always on hand. They're at a low enough price I can get one for everyone. Thank you.
It's a nice kit for the range. In case
