    "crowd control equipment"



    "Britain exported weapons and crowd control equipment to Colonel Gaddafi’s Libya, Hosni Mubarak’s Egypt, and Bahrain just months before they launched violent crackdowns."
    More: David Cameron 'promoting human rights' as he sells arms to Middle East dictatorships

    Do we have an equivalent for crowd control equipment that does fit the over-mentioned context? Researching Google for "crowd control equipment" and returned. Thanks in advance.

    Crowd control equipment is a broad term which includes essentially passive items like barriers as well as aggressive equipment like rubber bullets, water cannon, tazers, etcetera.
