NON-LETHAL IMPACT MUNITIONS:
personnel may utilize to temporarily incapacitate persons at ranges from about 50 feet, to as much as 50 yards, by affecting "accuracy and consistent transfer of kinetic energy to the target".
UNCOOPERATIVE PERSON STANDING AT A RANGE OF 10 TO 50 FEET IN POSSESSION OF A WEAPON. THE PERSON IS NOT DEMONSTRATING ANY TYPE OF AGGRESSIVE BEHAVIOR - SO THERE IS NO NEED, AT THIS TIME, TO UTILIZE FORCE/DEADLY FORCE.
YET, THE PERSON IS ARMED, AND PRESENTS A THREAT TO PERSONNEL, AND THE PUBLIC - IT IS THE JUDGEMENT OF PERSONNEL THAT TO AFFECT CONTROL OF THE SITUATION USING EMPTY HANDS, MAY JEOPARDIZE SAFETY OF ALL.
PERSONNEL ARE ALSO TOO FAR AWAY TO EMPLOY IMPACT WEAPONS: CHEMICAL AEROSOL PROJECTORS, OR ELECTRICAL CONTROL DEVICES.
