Brite-Strike Tactical Illumination Products, Inc. (BSTI.PK) Serves as Key Sponsor of the New York Law Enforcement Expo
Brite-Strike Technologies (BSTI.PK) recently served as a key sponsor of the New York Law Enforcement Expo held at the Jacob K. Javits Center. Glenn Bushee and Jon Neal, police officers and co-founders of Brite-Strike, were on-site at the two-day expo demonstrating Brite-Strike’s line of tactical LED flashlights.
Representatives from local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies attended the second annual two-day expo to check the latest in law enforcement technology, including Brite-Strike’s flagship line of tactical flashlights and safety equipment. According to the New York Times, the expo was “almost like Christmas in July” for all the law enforcement personnel.
The Brite-Strike Tactical Blue-Dot™ line is currently being utilized by a number of governmental agencies, the military, SWAT teams and other law enforcement agencies. The series has a patented Lightning Strike™ Personal Protection System that combines a high-intensity flashing strobe light with a loud ear-piercing personal alarm. The protection system was designed specifically for women, seniors, students, and other individuals who want an easy-to-deploy personal protection system. Law enforcement can also apply the protection system during traffic stops or other circumstances to temporarily disorient a subject, which increases an officer’s level of safety.
The design of the Blue-Strike Tactical Blue-Dot™ line of flashlights includes a body that is CNC machine milled from a solid bar of aircraft grade aluminum, a mil spec class III hard-anodized black finish, and a recessed (or “flush”) tactical end-cap that prevents accidental activation. Both the front and rear of the flashlights contain a defensive crown that provides maximum impact when used during weapon retention situations.
The tactical line of flashlights is also equipped with a reverse “fast draw” pocket clip that provides an officer with the ability to quickly draw from a duty belt, BDU pocket, or epaulet. The design allows for quick and easy placement onto an epaulet, even when using a gloved weaker hand. The flashlights also have a shockproof and waterproof design to hold up to daily and extended use.
Previously, the Brite-Strike products were only available via word-of-mouth, the company’s website, or a handful of high-end catalogs. The company has recently signed agreements with a number of retailers, including Lowes.com, Amazon.com, and BJ’s Wholesale Clubs, to carry the Brite-Strike line of products.
Bushee stated, “The safety of our fellow officers is paramount and it’s the whole reason we designed this product to begin with. We welcome any opportunity to get our equipment into the hands of those who need it most. Plus, these experienced professionals provide us with useful feedback on the light’s design, ease-of-use and effectiveness.”
