Safariland Now Offers Forensics Source Products at Retail Dealers Nationwide

September 24, 2009

Safariland™, a BAE Systems line of business, announced today that many of its Forensics Source™ products are now available directly to customers at retail law enforcement dealers nationwide.  To complement its one-stop-shop website,, the industry’s portal for all forensics-related supplies and equipment, customers can now conveniently purchase forensics products immediately when needed from their local dealer.  


Interest in the forensics field has increased significantly in recent years.  College students and universities have increased the demand for forensics products as more professionals are entering the field.  This has resulted in an increased number of forensics product purchasers, ranging from Crime Scene Investigators (CSIs) and first responders to forensics students. The heightened public interest in forensics is largely the result of the visibility this field has received on television and within other media, which showcase the uncompromising need for quality forensics-related products.


To address this growing market, Safariland now offers the most commonly used forensics products in three major categories at the retail level:

·          Patrol Products include a variety of items used by officers and security professionals in the performance of their daily patrol duties. Barrier tape, presumptive drug testing supplies, traffic sketching kits and fingerprinting pads are the perfect items to add to an officer’s duty kit.  

·          CSI Products include the supplies Crime Scene Investigators and Forensic Technicians use when processing crime scenes. This provides easy access to a variety of ID tents and cones, latent print kits containing high-quality Lightning Powder products, rulers, crime scene templates and evidence marking systems. 

·          First Responder Products include essential items needed when responding to a crime scene and marking evidence for subsequent collection and processing. The product line includes protective boots, marking chalk, a variety of evidence markers and fingerprint elimination kits. Adding these valuable products to first responder kits eliminates costly downtime when responding to a crime scene.


Forensics Source products by Safariland will be presented in a uniform and attractive display in retail dealers nationwide.
