Developed for UK police units only as a humane method of controlling dogs or other
The Animal Control Shield (ACS) is only for use in operations such as drugs raids,
where the officer may encounter a dangerous animal. The operator points the ACS at
the animal and presses the red button activating the conductive strips. If the dog
touches the strips it will receive a severe non-lethal shock. The strips also generate
discharge sparks, accompanied by loud crackling noises, which will deter most animals.
For added safety, the shield can only be activated with a specialist key.
