Glendale Police (AZ) deploy Liberator ETS during barricade situation

Last week, Patrol officers responded to a call from a neighbor who reported hearing gun shots and one of the rounds coming through her apartment almost striking her daughter. Glendale Police SWAT responded and by using their Liberator Elevated Tactics System on their Lenco BearCat, safely evacuated 5 victims (woman & her 4 children) from their apartment during the barricade.


The Liberator system allowed officers to quickly get the victims out of harm’s way and safely into the ballistic protection of the BearCat without exposing them to the ongoing threat in the apartment next to them where shots had been fired. After negotiations all of the subjects surrendered.
