Straight Baton

Technical Info:
Commonly made of rubber, plastic, or wood.
Can range in length from approx. 12 inches (30cms) to 36 inches (91.5cms).
The longer batons are commonly sold as “riot batons”.

The level of impact depends on the strength / skill of the user.
It is very easy to use excessive force, especially with the longer batons.
Over-arm strikes and strikes to the head and other sensitive areas increase the risk of serious injury.
Strictly control the use of hand-held kinetic impact striking weapons and regulate the development and transfer of such weapons.
