ASP Batons

Overview of the ASP Baton

The ASP baton began replacing the PR-24 baton in the 1990's.  Today, both are still out there, but the ASP is becoming more common for newer officers.

A-S-P actually stands for Armament Systems and Products which is the Wisconsin-based company that founded the ASP.

Many prefer the ASP baton since it is always carried as opposed to the PR-24 which must be grabbed from where it is stored in the patrol car.  Plus, since the ASP baton is smaller, it can be carried by by plain clothed officers as well.

The manufacturer of the ASP baton also points out:

A field study by the Illinois State Police demonstrated that this psychological impact often defuses a confrontation before it occurs. The training program for the ASP Tactical Baton is more comprehensive than other available programs. In addition to providing more extensive court defense, the ASP Baton is more defensible. It provides greater control with less tissue damage. The baton can generate greater fluid shock waves and allows the officer to recover faster than is possible with more traditional batons.

ASP batons come in 16 inch, 21 inch, and 31 inch sizes and start at about fifty dollars.

ASP batons are considered weapons and should only be purchased after consulting the laws of your state.

Officers can purchase ASP batons from Chief Supply
