ARWEN History

The ARWEN less lethal system was initially established by the British Crown Corporation, Royal Ordnance in 1977. 

In response to the operational needs of law enforcement and military, an examination was conducted into a system that would be able to deploy multiple less lethal rounds for riot control. The result of this devoted research and development was the ARWEN; one of the most reliable less lethal systems on the market today.

In 2001, the ARWEN less lethal system was acquired by Canadian based company, Police Ordnance and the success of the system continued. Once ARWEN was introduced to this new market, it was enthusiastically received becoming the premier less lethal launcher system for use by law enforcement. 

A New Legacy

A new team has acquired Police Ordnance and is excited about continuing the legacy of the ARWEN less lethal system. The corporate HQ and manufacturing will be moving to a new facility in the Greater Toronto Area, thus allowing for an expansion of all aspects of the company and ultimately enhancing service.

With an intention to take the system to the next level, this new ownership team has extensive operational experience in both law enforcement and military capacities. This renewed knowledge base will be utilized to support our customers in all aspects of less lethal, enhance instructional opportunities and create a continuous improvement organization based upon our Vision, Mission and Values.  

Our Commitment

Our team is committed to providing your agency the support it deserves and ensuring we hold ourselves accountable to our Vision of ensuring our clients have the most effective less lethal technologies to manage risk and protect human lives.
