Abstract:

An improved Mob Control Vehicle (MCV) may be necessary to handle riots and mobs in the streets and grounds at urban and non-urban areas. One of the important requirements of this mob control activity is barricading the entire road or ground in such a way that mob cannot harm the vehicle or ground security personnel directly. Accordingly the present invention provides a Vehicle mounted Sliding Type Retractable mobile Protective Shield, which is integrated with MCV. In general the shield is in fivefold retracted condition on rooftop of the vehicle and can be transported at sites without dismantling. During mob control activities the entire shield is brought down on the ground in vertical position ahead of the vehicle through hydraulically actuated cylinders. The side shield frames are expanded as per requirement or road or ground width, such that it can barricade the entire road or ground to protect the vehicle as well as security personnel from aggressive mob. The ground security personnel move along with the vehicle behind the barricade towards mob and can watch position of mob on other side. Whenever required the shield can be lifted partly to counter attack the mob. Lifting platforms attached with central shield frame is utilized for up and down movement of two numbers of security personnel to monitor the mob situation upto longer distance and firing of rubber bullets or tear gas shell over the shield. Once the mob control activities are over, the entire shield is folded and retracted on the roof for transportation.
