”For too long, when it comes to less-lethal technology, CERT operators have had a limited range of options,” said Senior Team Leader Joseph Garcia of US C-SOG. “ShockRounds will prove immensely useful in protecting our officers and reducing fatalities among inmates. Quite simply, ShockRounds gives CERT operators a powerful new tool to deal with the threats they confront every day.”

Marshall Couper, CEO of Harrington Group, stated: “We are very pleased to be working with US C-SOG who will provide a direct channel to market for Harrington in the corrections market. Their strong relationships with over 4,000 corrections facilities in 14 countries and access to many more through the CERT Tactical Network will help facilitate our transition into this market with our highly anticipated less-lethal products. We are also excited by the prospect of beta-testing the ShockRounds products through our relationship with US C-SOG.”
