Best Law Enforcement and Security Flashlights

Ideal Lights for Law Enforcement and Security

An effective and reliable tactical light is essential for any law enforcement and security position, whether you're a police officer or a security guard. A quality duty flashlight needs to be to have a bright and reliable output and be durable enough to endure extensive use and adverse conditions. A light with a tactical interface is a must, complete with a tailcap switch for one-handed operation, momentary activation for brief and controlled lighting, and a strobe function for disorienting a target. All of our duty lights are compact enough to be effortlessly carried and come with either a holster or pocket clip so they can be fastened to your belt for easy carry and easy access while out in the field.

Here at Battery Junction, we offer an abundance of flashlight brands, many of which specialize in tactical lights and some that even focus specifically on lights for law enforcement! For over a decade, we have been supplying local and national police and security professionals with lights and have consistently listened to their feedback to better understand what they need and improve our service. Having gained a strong familiarity with our products, our flashlight experts have melded what they already know with the opinions and preferences of local police and security guards to create a selection of optimal flashlights for officers.

Our Pick - Klarus XT2CR Rechargeable Tactical Flashlight

Our top choice for the best police flashlight is the Klarus XT2CR, a light that's the perfect combination of size, functionality, and durability for law enforcement and security. Its compact body is crafted from durable anodized aluminum so it can easily withstand the wear and tear of everyday use out in the field. Its stainless steel crenulated bezel surrounding its lens can be used for breaking glass and fending off assailants. It produces more than enough light for tactical purposes (1600 Lumens, 787 ft. beam distance) and includes a blinding strobe for additional self-defense applications. The light features a dual tail-switch interface with large buttons for easy one-handed operation that grants instant access to both steady and strobe outputs. Its secondary side switch doubles as a multi-color power indicator, allowing you to keep track of its remaining charge, so you're never surprised by a dead battery while in the field. The flashlight comes with both a removable pocket clip and a nylon holster for easy carrying while out on the job.

What's all this other stuff? While the Klarus XT2CR is our top choice for most police and security personnel, we understand that everyone has their own requirements or preferences (lower max output, longer runtime, different body design). To ensure you're able to choose the best light for you, we've included a number of different variations of tactical lights that we feel still perfectly fit the law enforcement light mold!
