The NYPD's Newest Weapon: Hand Sanitizer!
The NYPD's Newest Weapon: Hand Sanitizer! aka Skell Gel
Because fighting crime is a dirty job, beat cops and school safety officers are now being equipped with cute little bottles of liquid-sanitizer that clip onto their belts. "A police precinct is like a petri dish, with all the cops coming from the street with every bacteria," said a cop in lower Manhattan. The carrying cases (which look suspiciously like Sigg bottles) are stamped with “NYPD” in blue and can be refilled at precincts. A memo says it’s the commanding officers’ job to "ensure an adequate supply of sanitizer is maintained to refill." According to the Post, it also warned cops not to hook the hand sanitizer onto their firearm trigger guards, radio antennas and expandable batons. It’s good news for preventing sickness (swine flu in particular), but bad news for back pain: even with the “optional” hand sanitizer bottle, the average police belt—which contains handcuffs, keys, radio, bullets, pistol, pepper spray, flashlight and baton—weighs 16 pounds.
In other police equipment news, the NYPD is considering purchasing 3-D imaging machines that will help the force identify weapons used in crimes. The machines create a super hi-def (and three-dimensional) picture of bullets and shells, whose scratches and indents can be matched with suspicious firearms. Each machine costs $500,000; no word on how much the hand sanitizer costs.

Not enough crap on the gun belt but this stuff sure does come in handy and most carried it anyway, maybe not on the belt but at least now it is authorized and paid for by the department.

Yeah buddy, I have some in all of my rides. I love that shit!Just because your sign off after you're shift is done, doesn't mean that it's over and put blinders on. You're a cop 24/7 wether you like it or not. If thats something you can't handle, you should find a new line of work!
