Riot and Crowd Control Demonstration

U.S. Marines with 3rd Law Enforcement Battalion, III Marine Headquarters Group lead service members from the Armed Forces of the Philippines and Philippine National Police in final demonstration rehearsals for the Non-Lethal Weapons Executive Seminar 2014 at Fort Bonifacio, Philippines on Aug. 13, 2014.

The effective use of non-lethal weapons can be extremely valuable during rescue missions, for force protection in civil disturbances, while controlling rioting and prisoners of war, for checkpoint of convoy operations, HA/DR operations, or in situations in which civilians are used to mask a military attack.
