What Is An Active Shooter Kit?

By focusing on the armor aspect, the more advanced Active Shooter platform or response kit allows an officer to quickly put the plate on their existing concealed vest and instantly increase their defense when a dangerous situation escalates. The license plate holder is the backbone of an active response kit for shooters as it provides armor capabilities that deal with the threat posed by rifle and powerful firearms commonly used.
