12 07 2015

SABRE's MK-6, a high-intensity law enforcement pepper spray, is a favorite safety tool for correction officers on Rikers Island, reports NY1.

Pepper spray's benefits are staggering. For instance, the use of force resulting in no injury to inmates has increased substantially since 2013 (see graph above), thanks in part to pepper spray.

A spokesman for the Department of Corrections said to NY1: "The use of chemical spray is part of a redesigned Use of Force police that emphasizes using force that is proportional to the threat encountered, and using de-escalation techniques whenever practical."
