What To Look For When Buying a Police Torch?
When buying a police torch, it's essential to consider factors such as brightness, durability, battery life, and size. LED torches are generally preferred for their superior brightness and extended battery life. Moreover, the torch should be built to last, capable of withstanding harsh conditions and impacts. The ideal size is small enough to be conveniently carried on a duty belt or vest, and the torch should be designed for easy one-handed operation. Some torches even come with additional features, such as strobe functions or adjustable brightness levels.
