Abstract : A riot control barrier is needed to assist law enforcement personnel in holding back crowds during civil disturbances and riots. The USALWL developed the concept of a riot control barrier intended to meet that need. Prototype riot control barriers were fabricated and feasibility-tested. The test results indicated that the corrugated steel panel riot control barrier is feasible and practical for the intended purpose, and that the concept is suitable for further development into troop use items.
