Energy Weapon Protection Leader ThorShield Sponsoring Pearland Police Officer's Association Back the Badge Event on October 3rd

TUCSON, AZ--(Marketwired - Sep 28, 2015) - Energy Weapon Protection Leader ThorShield will be sponsoring the Pearland Police Officer's Association (PPOA) inaugural Back the Badge Community Event on Saturday, Oct. 3 from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

ThorShield protective clothing ( ensures that the electrical current conducts through the fabric versus the body, protecting the wearer. ThorShield products are only sold to law enforcement and military personnel.

The event will feature the opportunity to TASER Pearland City Councilman Tony Carbone. Residents may email bids and the winning bidder will pull the trigger on the TASER to demonstrate its effectiveness. Carbone will first be stunned with TASER while wearing ThorShield protective gear -- where he will not feel a thing -- and then without it, when he'll certainly get the shock of his life. This video shows the amazing difference:

"We think that it would be a lot of fun -- as well as enlightening for the officers and other law enforcement in attendance -- to see the difference between being protected from energy weapons such as TASER Brand Devices, and being vulnerable to them, as they are without ThorShield's highly conductive specialized protective gear," states Greg Williams, Partner, ThorShield. "Our representative Alex Solis will be in attendance to take questions, and he is also available at 520-991-0541 or"

The event has been moved to the PISD administration building, located at 1928 N. Main (SH 35), due to great demand. "The response from the community has been very positive," said Pearland Police Officer's Association (PPOA) President Det. John DeSpain.
