Global Pathogen Solutions Stun Gun Dart Remover

Electronic Control devices (ECDs), also known as stun guns, can end a situation with less-lethal means at a safe distance from a subject. But removing the barbed darts from a subject is a risky business. Not only does being accidentally pricked by a barb hurt, any contaminants from blood left on the darts can infect an officer with all manner of pathogens.

The D.A.R.T. Pro Kit and X-Tractor Tips from Global Pathogen Solutions are designed to remove the darts without any direct contact. Called the Dart Acquiring and Removal Tool, the D.A.R.T. is a handheld device with two detachable chambers that retract the darts inside and then can be removed to safely transport the darts for evidence.

Harris Communications Unity Radios

Almost every law enforcement first responder has been there: All hell is breaking loose around you; you're trying to talk to a dispatcher or fellow officer, and nobody can hear you and you can't hear them. Harris Communications' new Project 25-compliant Unity XG-100 multiband radio has astounding noise suppression software. As demonstrated at IACP, you can hear whispers over this thing amid all the noise of a major incident scene.

Havis IdleRight

Agencies concerned about saving fuel lost to idling emergency vehicles may want to take a look at Havis' new IdleRight. This innovative and inexpensive system lets officers turn off their engines without worrying about battery drain from emergency lights. IdleRight monitors the charge of the battery, and when it falls below a certain threshold the system turns on the vehicle's engine to recharge the battery. When the battery is strong enough, the system turns off the engine.

The ScanStation C10 is also used to create crime scene panoramas on the A&E TV show "Crime 360."
