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-fold 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.
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.
Dimensions: 3.75"W x 5"H x 2"D (vacuum sealed)
Weight: 6.5 oz
To ensure best quality and timely delivery, we may substitute items in our kits and modules with products of equal or better quality.

i love the kit i carry in my scrubs pocket at work.Only thing is the swat t is rooled instead off being packed flat wich would make it slimer to carry.
For the price and for what it packs, you cant beat this product. A nice gift idea too!
This kit can go anywhere -- in a laptop bag, through airport security, in a pocket. Add Combat Gauze and an NPA and you've got what you need to keep someone alive for an ambulance.
The kit is packaged a little odd. It would seem like there could have been a little bit better planning on the vacuum packaging. There is some excess material but still can fit in a jacket pocket easily or cargo pocket. Contains all the necessary items for those "Just In Case" moments. Overall for the price and the contents its a 4 out of 5.
Decent Product. Contains the stuff you need in a pinch. The SWAT is a great idea but not so great for self rescue on an arm injury- not bad for a leg though - I like that it can be used as a compression dressing. The ZPak dressing will do the trick in most cases. The gloves will work but not good if you are trying to stay concealed. Same with the duct tape- great idea, useful for everything but a black or OD color would be better! All in all I think it will work while waiting for more definitive care from EMS or the ER.
Small enough to tuck away but big enough to save a life when needed. Great alternative for a first responder who might not be able to carry a full jump back.
A nice compact kit that offers a little peace of mind while on duty. I recently participated in an "Officer Down" training class. I learned the importance of having a tourniquet available when needed could be the difference between life and death for me orca fellow officer.
The items promised in the kit are rolled up as pointed out in Chris's review earlier. The packaging doesn't make clear that once you break that seal, the items are accessible. I put mine into a ziplock bag and instead of a pocket kit, it went into my range bag in case I'm around an accidental discharge. Great concept, but for plain clothes carry it doesn't work well unless you have a jacket.
