Patrol Officer's Pocket Trauma Kit
During the Advanced Law Enforcement Rapid Response Training (ALERRT) Conference in San Marcos, TX, company president Phil Carey 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. Current department cutbacks made it cost prohibitive to look at even the most basic trauma kits that Rescue Essentials offers for individual patrol officers. Phil went to work with his team to come up with an affordable solution to this problem.
After three rounds of modifications based on officers who tested the kit, we are now offering the Patrol Officer Pocket Trauma Kit (POPTK) pictured above, priced at $17.95.
The Patrol Officer Pocket Trauma Kit includes:
1 SWAT-T® Tourniquet
1 Z-Pak Gauze Dressing, Z-Folded
1 Pair Nitrile Gloves
1 3 ft Duct Tape
Here's the way it works-
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 $1800! 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
To ensure best quality and timely delivery, we may substitute items in our kits and modules with products of equal or better quality.

Helping cops save lives
Posted by Unknown on 02 17 2016
I'm in the process of purchasing approximately 300 of these for my dept. Our 1st wave is out on the street and we've used them multiple times on stabbing and gunshot victims. This pack is credited with saving lives no doubt. Its simple and easy to use. You can use every piece - plastic also. Price from RE is excellent.

Great product for the price and size, you could keep it in a larger kit or throw it right in your pocket, it's straight to the point stop the bleeding and keep the wound sterile.
Good Kit, Just not for your "Pocket"
Posted by Jacob Fannin on 12 24 2015
Overall this kit is well thought out and would be a tremendous aid in a critical incident. The items inside of the kit would cover a round range of potentially deadly injuries. The only thing I do not like about the kit is that it's sold as a "pocket" kit. I don't know what kind of pockets they are referring to, but I do not have any that would be appropriate. The best way to approach this kit would be to also buy the small carry case that is made for it. It would and can carry on a duty belt without issue. Note: the SWAT T included does have a learning curve and requires some training before it can be used proficiently.
Probable Life Saved

As a Patrol Officer, I have worn this product on my patrol belt for about a year and a half. I bought it as a self-reliant penetrating trauma kit for use by me ON me. I have reordered this kit because I used the one on patrol belt the other day. Not on myself, thank God. I was dispatched to an attempted suicide. Upon arrival, lots of blood, but no subject. The blood trail led over a wall and onto the railroad tracks that ran through the woods. I called for a K-9 and the dog found the subject in a heavily wooded area, where we never would have found him. The K-9 and handler backed out and I went in to the subject where I saw a male subject with that 1000 mile stare, shaking, and a lot of blood on the ground. My partner and I rolled the subject onto his back, where we immediately saw a laceration of the neck from ear to ear with heavy bleeding. The only thing available to control and hopefully stop that bleeding was your patrol kit. I handed the kit to my partner to open while I applied my gloves. I used the Z-folded gauze to immediately pack the wound and I held pressure to the wound. With reassurance and stemming the flow of blood, the subjects respirations and pulse rate decreased to the point where he could now give us his information. EMS eventually arrived, and took medical control of the subject. Your kit has been on my belt for over a year and never used until this event. It is unobtrusive, and I didn't even know it's there until I needed it. I think we may have saved a life that day, in a remote area, away from our cruiser, and it was made possible by your kit. Thanks for a great product.

For the price and for what it packs, you cant beat this product. A nice gift idea too!
The best sub-compact trauma kit I've found
Posted by Unknown on 03 03 2014
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.
Good as "Just In Case"
Posted by James from Boston on 02 11 2014
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.
Great in a pinch!
Posted by Mike on 11 27 2013
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.
