Brownells’ QD-360-ID Wins 2011 Cygnus Law Enforcement Innovation Award at IACP

Des Moines, Iowa – -( Brownells’ QD-360-ID High Visibility Identification Banner was selected as the winner in the “Body Armor and Safety” Category of the 2011 Cygnus Law Enforcement Innovation Award ceremony, held at the IACP Conference in Chicago.

The Brownells QD-360-ID is a fluorescent yellow-green banner that identifies a non-uniformed officer during emergency situations. The identification banner stows inconspicuously and conveniently in a compact belt pouch that looks like a cell phone carrier and is easily deployed using the non-shooting hand.

Manufacturers submit their newest and most inventive products for evaluation by a panel of independent law enforcement judges. The panel is made up of distinguished law enforcement professionals from a variety of backgrounds. Each product in the Innovation Awards program was evaluated based on criteria such as innovativeness, productivity, quality, contribution, ease of use and maintainability and cost effectiveness.

Brownells LE General Manager Steve Denny said, “Thank you to Cygnus and all the judges for recognizing the ability of the QD 360 ID to enhance officer safety. It’s a great honor to receive this award. The QD 360 ID is a tangible example of Brownells long time commitment to the Law Enforcement community. We would also like to extend a special thanks to the inventor of the QD 360 ID, Mike Lessman, founder of DSM Safety Products. His 20 plus years of service and sacrifice as a police officer led to this potentially lifesaving product.”

The Cygnus Law Enforcement Group includes print magazines Law Enforcement Technology and Law Enforcement Product News, the website, the Enforcement Expo and the brand new Officer World Expo.
