The Pittsburgh Police Department used an LRAD to communicate with and disperse unruly crowds during the G20 Summit in Sept 2009.

Nate Harper, the Pittsburgh police bureau chief, told reporters. "It served its purpose well."

Raymond DeMichiei, Pittsburgh's deputy director of emergency management and homeland security, said he thought the devices worked well without hurting anyone. "Every police officer I talked to thought it worked famously," said Mr. DeMichiei, who ordered the devices for Pittsburgh. "The bottom line is we could maintain order with the protesters without hurting them.

"It is designed to get people to do what police want. It makes them uncomfortable but does not hurt them," he said, noting that Pittsburgh police had been trained to use the devices properly.

"Since receiving it (LRAD), the SWAT team has employed it on several occasions and has been completely satisfied with its performance and capabilities. It is the ideal communications platform during SWAT tactical operations."
"We deployed the LRAD in several situations with an immediate response from the crowds. This resultant “safe area” undoubtedly created a safer atmosphere for both citizen and police officers. I am grateful that our days of broadcasting by a bullhorn or police vehicle PA system are over."
