Police Kit Bags
About Our Police Kit Bags
Police kit bags are an essential tool for law enforcement officers. These bags are designed to carry and organise the necessary equipment and supplies for various officers on duty.
Police bags are built from durable materials that can withstand harsh conditions and protect equipment. They come in various sizes and styles to suit different needs and preferences, like all-purpose use, forensics and firearms. Some kit bags feature multiple compartments and pockets for better organisation, while others have MOLLE webbing for attaching additional pouches or accessories.
These bags can hold everything from firearms and ammunition to first aid kits and communication devices, making them indispensable for police officers.
Niton 999 stocks many types of police kit bags ranging from simple patrol bags to specialist firearms, dump pouches and munitions bags. See our handy guide to the best police bags.
What Is The Best Kit Bag For Police Officers?
Choosing the best kit bag largely depends on preference and specific job requirements.
First, police bags should be built of high-quality materials that can withstand the rigours of daily use in all weather conditions. Durability is paramount, extending to fabric, zips, velcro, buckles, and other features. Look out for high-quality nylon and other materials.
Second, the bag should do its job correctly, with compartments and pockets for various equipment and supplies. MOLLE webbing for attaching additional pouches or accessories is also a useful feature.
Specialist kit bags are often designed with specific roles in mind, such as carrying firearms and munitions.
What Should Be In A Police Patrol Bag?
The specific contents of a police bag will vary depending on the job requirements and any specific role or purpose for the bag. Items that law enforcement might include in a police bag include:
• Handcuffs and restraints
• Firearms and ammunition
• First aid kit and medical supplies
• Pepper spray or other non-lethal weapons
• Radio and communication devices
• Notebook and pen
• Breathalyser and drugs tests
• Personal protective gear such as gloves, masks, and goggles
• Multi-tool or knife for cutting or prying.
In addition, officers may carry additional equipment or supply specific to their assigned duties or specialised units, e.g. forensics equipment. Armed police typically need larger kit bags with MOLLE webbing for tactical flexibility.
