The Metropolitan Police in London have introduced the remote-controlled PROSpike which bursts the tires of mopeds, often used by gangs to commit crime.

PROSpike Remote-Controlled Spike Device

In a press conference the Metropolitan Police showed a ProSpike device, a belt of spikes which can be deployed remotely, puncturing the tires of a suspect’s scooter.

Met Commissioner, Cressida Dick, said there was considerable “outrage” in communities about this sort of incident and they were doing everything in their power to tackle moped-enabled crime.

The PROSpike police stinger is a new and innovative vehicle-stop system that distinguishes itself from other police stingers with an unmatched efficiency and safety for the end users. While developing the PROSpike it was our mission to create a deployabe stinger without risk for the operator. All PROSpike models have been tested and approved by the TÜV.
