Designed to the specifications of the Los Angeles Police Department, the TacMed™ LAPD Kit was created for use by all Los Angeles County Law Enforcement Agencies, including the LA Sheriff's Department. It provides the law enforcement officer with maximum flexibility while providing on target care. Worn on the leg, the pouch attaches directly to the officer's belt or to a tourniquet pouch worn on the belt. When worn with the tourniquet pouch, the detachable lower portion of the kit provides for additional medical capabilities if the situation dictates, while having the tourniquet available for instant access on the officer's belt. The pouch is available with two options: a 1.5”-wide length drop leg strap or a 2”-wide length drop leg strap. Both strap options are adjustable and come with a black D ring attached. The D ring provides a rapid attaching point in an emergency to a key clip or belt keeper. This pouch is offered stocked based on different levels of medical capabilities. All kits can also be custom packed to meet your specific mission requirements.

In 2014, the Los Angeles Police Department equipped its officers with 8,000 of these tactical first aid kits. A 15-year upgrade for the LAPD, all officers received training as well to be able to use the combat-style trauma kits to provide potentially life-saving medical treatment to victims.
