Police Ballistic Shield, Inc. was founded in 2017 near Tampa, Florida by Steve Bush, President, with the goal of providing quality products for law enforcement to keep officers safer on the job.
The company began as the sole source for the Riggs Shield™, a patented ballistic shield that mounts to the inside of a patrol car, becoming the fastest deploying shield on the market.
Deputy Robert Riggs saw it firsthand when his partner was ambushed in his patrol car which had armored door panels installed. Fortunately, his partner survived the attack with bullet wounds to his hand when he tried to protect his face. Riggs went to work to develop a solution to prevent that scenario in the future.
Steve Bush worked in law enforcement in Cleveland, Ohio, on and off for 14 years, in Corrections and Patrol. He was a martial arts instructor with a 6th Degree Black Belt in Chinese Kenpo and black belts in American Kenpo, Tai Kwon Do, and Judo. He is also a certified NRA instructor. He developed self-defense programs for law enforcement used by many federal, state, and local agencies.
Steve understands the needs of law enforcement. Our sales team and all our product suppliers are either current or former law enforcement or military.
Today, Police Ballistic Shields offers a wide range steel ballistic shields from Hardcore Defense. Owner Brett Cryer, with an engineering degree from Stanford, designs affordable pistol and rifle-rated ballistic shields that are very popular with law enforcement.
Two of our product vendors, Legacy Safety and Supply and 221b Tactical, teamed up to produce a better K-9 armored vest with ventilation that doesn’t restrict the movement of the K-9, and keeps them cooler.
We will continue on this path to find what we feel are the most effective products at affordable prices to keep officers safer on the job – from ballistic shields, body armor, helmets, K-9 protection and scene lighting.
And finally, a message to our customers:
“Thank you for your service. Stay safe.”
