We will be recommending its use to all of our members.”

Brian Dawe, Executive Director of the ACO confirms, “The sooner we get this product into the hands of our officers the sooner we will see a reduction in workplace injuries. After wearing the Harding suit myself, I can attest to its potential to prevent the kinds of blunt trauma injuries currently sustained by so many of our serving officers.”
