"The Ampel Probe is not another gadget to wear or store in your box but an essential tool to protect your life in so many ways, everyday. Personally, during my years in Special Operations and as a First Responder in the medical field, wish I could have had access to at least one Ampel Probe tool. The manipulation and especially the stand off distance provided by the tool is essential to the peace officer, bomb technician, investigator and paramedic whether you are collecting evidence or using them to conduct personal pat down searches."
- Rick D. Goins, State of Missouri,
Critical Asset Protection Office.
"The Ampel Probe has proven to be a very beneficial tool to the Office of the Sheriff's Detention Services. The Ampel Probe is used throughout our two facilities where routine pat frisks of arrestees and inmates are conducted. The Ampel Probe aids detention personnel in conducting searches, retrieving contraband and evidence without fear of injury or direct contact with infectious materials or fluids. The Detention Services Division will be relocating to a new state of the art detention facility shortly. It is anticipated that staff will be able to conduct searches of increased numbers of arrestees and inmates quickly and efficiently. The Ampel Probe allows the employer to furnish employees with a place of employment free from recognized hazards that may cause blood borne diseases or serious physical harm to employees. I recommend the Ampel Probe it will provide reasonable and adequate protection to the lives, safety and health of employees. We use it on a routine basis. I don't know how we survived without them."
- Deputy Director Daphony Lyons, North Carolina Detention Center,
Durham County, NC

"This department has purchased your Ampel Probe and have been using it in our one hundred bed jail for the past three months. It has worked out well and all the staff use it when searching incoming prisoners. The thing the staff like most is that it is easy to operate and the safety factor of not having to put fingers into pockets that have sharp objects. The Ampel Probe slides right into the pockets and retrieves any contraband that is there easily and safely. The Ampel Probe is a good investment for the Department."
- Harvey S. Nyland, Sheriff-Coroner,
San Benito County California
