In addition, Boydd Products is the sole creator and producer of the popular "Pat Down Props."  Boydd Products is a CA Certified Disabled Veteran & Small Business Enterprise (DVBE & SB #2012750). 

Pat Down Props  

Boydd Products, Inc. is the sole manufacturer of "Pat-Down Props." These props were designed and developed by Jim Boydd in 2013. Pat-Down Props are a replicated weapons & contraband training kit specifically utilized for searching, scenario and perishable skills based training. Pat-Down Props is a registered trademark of Boydd Products, Inc. and are patent pending. Pat-Down Props are sold by several law enforcement product retailers in the USA and abroad.    

Boydd NIJ Compliant Level III Hard Armor  

In late 2016 Boydd Products launched its own line of affordable lightweight rifle plates. Boydd's Level III UHMWPE plates are NIJ Compliant and listed. Using an innovative approach to trauma reduction, Boydd's unique plates are backed with a professional sports grade high impact polymer material and are infused with Microban for anti-microbial properties.  

Compact Response Shields  

In 2018 Boydd Products designed, patented & launched its new line of affordable, compact & lightweight rifle rated ballistic shields. The Compact Response Shields have been independently tested to NIJ 0108.01 standards by OBL for ballistic resistance including special threat ammunition. Using an innovative approach, these patented shields have no drilled holes or hardware fastened in the armor which can cause weak points or secondary hazards. In 2022, the Compact Response Shields were acquired by the Armor Research Company out of Torrance, CA.    


In 2022 Boydd Products will be launching a new line of Police Batons. For decades the straight police baton has been the staple of law enforcement. Many agencies still use or have gone back to straight batons due to their superior reliability and effectiveness. Now, the straight baton will finally be modernized and will offer many never seen before features and benefits.
