PASCO, Wash. — The Pasco Police Department recently updated its equipment by purchasing 110 BANISH Speed K silencers from Silencer Central, according to a news release from the company.

This acquisition follows extensive testing and evaluation by the department, affirming the suppressor’s suitability for law enforcement use, according to the release.

“We are very proud of the BANISH Speed K and our partnership with Federal Ammunition. I was confident that the Pasco, Washington Police Department would want to add the Speed K after they tested it,” said Silencer Central CEO Brandon Maddox. “It met every design point that we set out for it, and Pasco’s testing proves it is a perfect silencer for law enforcement agencies.”

Designed in collaboration with Federal Ammunition, the BANISH Speed K is a compact, 5.56-caliber suppressor optimized for law enforcement applications, particularly for SWAT teams and duty rifles used in close-quarters scenarios, according to the release. The suppressor measures 4 inches in length and 2 inches in diameter, preventing the rifle from snagging in fast-paced operations. It also significantly reduces noise exposure, registering 138.5 decibels at the shooter’s ear, which is critical for protecting officers’ hearing.

“Having the entire department equipped with suppressed patrol rifles was an important consideration,” said Chief Ken Roske of the Pasco Police Department. “Reducing potential hearing loss of officers and the public during shooting events was a major factor in our testing.”

The BANISH Speed K’s design incorporates clipped-wall baffles and a finned blast chamber to minimize gas blowback, according to the release. It reduces recoil, eliminates muzzle flash and minimizes muzzle rise during rapid fire. It is constructed from 100% Inconel, a type of steel known for its strength and heat resistance.

The suppressor has passed seven rounds of U.S. Special Operations Command testing protocols, according to the report.
