In the world, there are always discrepancies about any topic. It is normal thta any city on the planet there are manifestations on some sontroversial issue and that it can get out of control in an instant.
The main mission of the police must be to protect citizens from crimes that may arise in the srteets. However, the type of conventional police is not prepared, at least in a matter of uniforms, to be able to control and counteract a manifestation out of control.
When people gather together in mass, they behave in a different way, for example in a manifestation affected by a pint of things, make riots, destroy objects on the street and generate chaos in the city. For this reason, the city administration needs a special team dressed with a special suit to be able to face these types of situations that may be at risk to other citizens.
These special forces need a uniform that can protect them against short-range attacks, thrown objects and tear gas (which are normally used to deter protesters).
The anti-riot suit has these characteristics that fill the requiermets and be able to portect to withstand the demands that a normal police unifom cannot handle. Mainly, the riot uniforms is composed of a mask to breathe in enviroments where gases can reduce the functioning of the troops. In the part of the torso, the unifom has protection in chest. Similarly, the uniform protects the legs, genital areas, arms, elbows, knees, neck and head. In the case of the head, the riot suit has a special helmet in which it protects the upper part of the head and the face, while maintaining the protected face without impeding vision.
In addittion to having all that protection, the law enforcement has a shield thta helps it withstand heavy blows and a baton to defend against any aggression.
