Are there any LEO who run (or are allowed to run) inside the ear electronic hearing protection

that either also the passage of non-hazardous sound or are capable of amplifying non-hazardous sound ?

 

Do you know of anyone or any department that is doing so ? 

 

I do not refer to things like my SRT, where we usually had time to suit up and put our electronic earpro on, but rather an inside the ear that is intended to be worn during your patrol. 

 

Thanks guys. (and ladies)

 

John

Hard to say, the need to be able to hear your surroundings is paramount and with the way the US likes to prosecute our brothers and sisters in blue, they could say that you were looking to shoot someone by being prepared with Ear Pro.

on how many LEO's benefit from wearing inside the ear sound amplifying earpro on an everyday basis, on patrol.

 

I had NEVER heard of such a thing, and wanted to find out if anyone had. 

Sometimes I'm the last to know.    :segrin:

I haven't "heard" of it. (yuk yuk, I slay me...)

 

I have a cheap set of electronic ear pro hanging on my plate carrier. If I have to deploy into an active shooter incident, they're going with me.

I agree with Pep, it is good to have , but I think depending if it is an active shooter situation or not, having ear pro could be good and bad. being aware of surroundings is paramount but also protecting your hearing is important too. I would include it in the plate carrier, but not for regular patrol use.

I agree 100 % . 

Just wondering if I had missed this supposed revolution in hearing protection for LEO.

Thanks for the responses.

I wouldn't be surprised for new tech in ear pro but I haven't seen or heard of stuff to be used in everyday patrol.
