ABOUT BAKER BALLISTICS
Baker Ballistics, LLC was started in the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks in New York City, by Lt. Alfred J. Baker, a highly decorated officer now retired from the NYPD Emergency Service Unit.
During his career Lt. Baker was called to take action in multiple shootouts, and experienced the loss of heroic fellow officers who were murdered in the line of duty. He felt compelled to use his background and ingenuity to create an innovative new armor that would protect officers when faced with armed threats.
In 2003 Lt. Baker, President/Inventor teamed up with Rick Armellino, Director/CEO, in the design and manufacturing of the Baker Batshield®, calling on Armellino’s more than 30 years of experience in armor, which included being the past President of American Body Armor. The team engineered and tested their product until convinced it was ready for production.
The first Baker Batshield® was introduced in 2004. It provides armored shield protection of officers during deployment in active shooter threats, is designed to work with a handgun, long gun, shot gun or sub-machine gun and combines the benefits of rapid mobility, superior firepower accuracy and optimum personal ballistic protection.
The Baker Batshield® has proven to be one of the best life-saving pieces of police equipment ever designed. It is now used by law enforcement, military, and security officers worldwide.
Baker Ballistics™ is staffed with experienced law enforcement and industry professionals who share the concern about the increase in armed violence occurring in schools, malls, businesses and public places and the risks they present to law enforcement personnel and innocent citizens.
We are proud that our products are made in the United States. Baker Ballistics™ is the sole manufacturer of the Baker Batshield® products. They are available from authorized distributors and dealers.
Baker Batshield® Composite Ballistic Shields are solely manufactured by Baker Ballistics, LLC under the exclusive license authorized and granted by Alfred J. Baker.
