After several months of discussion and obtaining the necessary licensing, Body Armour Canada is very pleased to be working with Crotega to bring their revolutionary REPULS® deterrent spray to Canada.

Bill Geraghty, CEO of Body Armour Canada, said, “As a former police officer, I can attest to the negative side effects related to using the old and out-dated conventional pepper spray (OC/CS) when trying to detain and secure a suspect. An officer can experience the same discomfort, due to the airborne residue surrounding the suspect when going hands-on to detain them, which can linger in their eyes as well as on their face and clothing. If the spray is utilized in a vehicle or cell, these areas often become unavailable for long periods as they need to be completely cleaned.”

The REPULS® spray has been created so that it can be used anywhere at anytime. The water-based chemical deterrent spray is easily and quickly mitigated with water being applied to the receiver’s eyes. In addition, there is little or no need to mitigate a vehicle, cell, or an officer’s clothing other than to remove the odour.

Geraghty went on to say, “This new spray is a game changer for persons within law enforcement, corrections, CBSA as well as specialized security teams. I cannot see any downside to switching to REPULS®, which has the added benefit of having a shelf-life of five years verses two-three years with the current option”.
