PCPD Tactical Team

The Ponca City Police Department Tactical Team recently purchased a 40mm chemical munitions launcher system.

This system allows officers to deploy chemical munitions, such as tear gas and OC gas, into a structure from much greater distances than they were previously able to.

This extended range greatly reduces exposure of team members when deploying chemical munitions when encountering barricaded or hostile subjects who may be armed and combative.

The use of chemical munitions allows officers to gain control of a situation, and reduce the chance that deadly force will be necessary.
