Cape Girardeau Police Department Receives Donation

FGR Mechanical donated three Byrna HD non-lethal launchers to the Cape Girardeau Police Department recently. The launchers that were recently donated use air that is compressed to shoot .68 caliber rounds of chemical irritant projectiles which can disable any threat within a sixty mile radius. The launchers will be utilized to handle situations where it would be appropriate to disrupt the suspect’s actions when they haven’t created an immediate threat to anyone’s life, but is still capable of committing harmful acts, police say. They say if they have a more violent suspect who has a bladed weapon and they don’t have a hostage or they are not close enough to injure anyone right away these projectiles could be used to detain the suspect.
