Boxing Glove Grenade

The grenade version of the bean bag gun

You'd pull the pin to arm it and throw it at the bank robber, hostage taker etc. Upon impact with the subject, the grenade would explode but not disintegrate. Instead, the explosive charge inside would blow up its surrounding tough Kevlar balloon envelope, expanding to about five times its original size with enough force to impart a boxing glove like blow to the person hit by it.

The advantages of this are that the impact force would be the same from any distance, several could be carried on the officer's belt without the need for an additional weapon and they could be used while another firearm was held at the ready should it be necessary.

The officer's options for escalation of force could have another tier allowing them one more option before having to revert to deadly force.

       There are plenty of low-lethality munitions which do the same job.

       Hu? Oh. Meant to hit "weapon/projectile". I'll do gun: non-lethal.   

       Not so with other munitions doing the same job. A stun grenade can still blow an eye out if it blows up in your face, a beanbag gun requires that you carry the gun and be at the right range, not too far and not too close. A beanbag gun hitting somebody too close can break their jaw. Too far it bounces off like a Nerf ball. This has the same impact at any range.   

       Being a beanbag gun that doesn't need a gun is reason enough to justify this imho.
