The advantages and disadvantages of each baton
time2015-07-15 03:29 read times

Each baton has its own advantages and disadvantages in tactical defense, and these characteristics are listed below:

Straight baton
These batons are the oldest design but qualify as the most commonly used baton today.  The batons come in different sizes, but some police departments do not use straight batons because they are inconvenient to carry and make the police officer look threatening.

Expandable baton
These batons are easier to carry, makes the police officer look less intimidating, and can be used in collapsed or extended mode.  Disadvantages associated with the expandable baton include taking a longer time to access the object and having the object collapse when needed the most.

Side-Handle baton
These batons offer more defensive maneuvers, especially in a knife fight.  Also, the baton will not roll away, and these batons are used mostly for defense.  Disadvantages of the side-handle baton include more weight compared to a straight baton and required training for some defensive maneuvers.
