A riot batton usually is a two handed police accessory used to control crowds. A personal batton (or ASP) is usually used with ine hand on a single individual. Both are considered less than lethal.

The Legality of carrying a police baton


In most countries it is legal for law enforcement and military officials to carry. For a civilian to carry a police baton varies from country to country.

Within the United states the laws regarding carrying and pocessing a police baton change from state to state. In some states like Vermont and Arizona one is able to legally carry a baton if you don't have criminal intent or unlawful behaviour. On the other end of the spectrum states like California prohibit the carrying of any club like weapons by a civilian.

In the UK the prevention of crime act of 1953 prohibited the carrying of batons in a public space because they are objects that are adapted for causing harm to another person. The UK also has laws about the manufacturing, selling and importing batons.

Probably one of the most leanient countries in regards to carrying police batons is Canada. They have no laws against carrying a baton in a public area so long as it is not spring loaded or being carried consealed. While in Sweden one is permitted to own a baton so long as they don't carry it in a public space if they are a private citizen.

Baton won't open


It could be stuck from dirt or rust. Remove the but cap and check the inside for debris/rust and also the tension spring to be sure it's not too tight. If you get it open again, clean it and keep a light oil on the baton, like WD-40.

What is an expandble baton?


Expandable baton, as an impact tool, can be used to strike, jab and block and to aid arm locks. To open, you simply flick your wrist quickly to expand it to it's full size. To close, you simply slam the baton straight down on a hard surface like the floor or a table

What is a baton?


Wikipedia says: A truncheon or baton (also called a cosh, billystick, billy club, nightstick, sap, blackjack, stick) is essentially a club of less than arm's length made of wood, plastic, or metal. They are carried for forced compliance and self-defense purposes by law-enforcement officers, correctional staff, security-industry employees and (less often) military personnel. Other uses for truncheons and batons include crowd control or the dispersal of belligerent or non-compliant targets.

What is a stun baton?


A stun baton is basically like a baton except that it carries an electric charge. Some have a switch on the handle that the officer can switch when the baton is in contact with the assailant. Other types have a constant electric charge going through the baton, with an insulated handle, so if anyone is touching the baton (other than the handle) they will be shocked

Rio Riot


Have a try with this one:

Although not officially available (or supported by DNNA) for the Riot, it happens to function with the Riot as well as newer players. Potentially later updates to RMM might break support with the older players.
