IACP 2009: Best of Show

From patrol cars to uniform pants, there was a lot of cool stuff in the aisles of the Denver Convention Center.

December 22, 2009  |  by Melanie Basich and David Griffith

Silver Eagle Manufacturing Portable Barricade

The Mobile Crowd Control Barrier from Silver Eagle Manufacturing had its debut at IACP. Even though it wasn't fully deployed, its sheer size was impressive to see on the show floor. Transportable by standard police SUVs, the barrier installs from and stores on its own trailer, so no additional transport trailers or loading time is necessary before deployment. It takes just four minutes for two police officers to erect the 44-foot-wide, 8.2-foot-high full protection blockade. The barrier features anti-scaling overhangs to prevent people from climbing over it, making it useful as a protective barrier for tactical teams as well as for crowd control and blocking crime scenes from public view.

The Nova-Lite is a combination of a Honda EB-3000 portable generator and 500-watt quartz halogen emergency lights. With a runtime of six to nine hours, the generator-light combination is ideal for major incident scenes. The lights rotate to any angle and can telescope to a height of 82 inches. The entire rig is built into a wheeled dolly and weighs 140 pounds.

Thales Liberty Multiband Radio

With so many bands being used for public safety radio transmissions, communication can get complicated. Thales Communications' Liberty multiband Land Mobile Radio (LMR) allows federal, state, local, and U.S. Department of Defense agencies to communicate across all of the public safety bands using a single portable radio.

Liberty radios are about the same size and weight as single-band portable LMRs and are designed to meet all public safety specifications. Smaller agencies with legacy systems can use Liberty radios to tap into a larger state network, and any agency can hold onto a cache of them for use in emergencies when multi-agency teamwork is often needed.

The Earphone Connection Covert Surveillance Kit

Perfect for undercover operations, The Earphone Connection's Snake Ultimate Surveillance Kit includes a low-profile highly sensitive microphone that covertly clips under a simple T-shirt, while the audio jack resembles iPod earbuds. With your hands in your pocket, you can inconspicuously access the belt-clip PTT button. With almost everyone walking around with an iPod these days, this kit will help you blend into the crowd.

Trikke Tech Three-Wheeled Vehicle

A new three-wheeled electric-powered vehicle from Trikke (pronounced "trike," like the standard abbreviation of tricycle) allows an officer to maneuver through a crowd and dismount in a snap if necessary. A cambering device lets the rider move side to side to carve deep turns, which is described as similar to skiing.

Built on top of the company's rugged T8Air chassis, the Tribred uses a lightweight, hot-swappable Lithium Ion power supply that can be recharged in your car. The Tribred can travel 18 mph on flat ground and offers up to 20 miles of range per charge. The average cost of a full charge is roughly seven cents, according to the company.

At just 38 pounds, the Trikke Tribred can be easily folded and transported in the trunk of a police car. This means it can be quickly delivered to the scene of an event, unfolded in seconds, and deployed when needed.

Uncle Mike's Eagle Gear

Eagle Gear from Uncle Mike's Law Enforcement is made to comfortably fit on the hips, whether you're a man or a woman. Developed with input from a female trainer, the line includes a duty belt that's curved to follow the hips and waist and padded to prevent bruising and pain that can be caused by a belt hitting hip bones.

What makes the gear in this line so great is that each case easily unsnaps and slides off, without disturbing the other cases on the belt. The entire line is available in basketweave, nylon, and plain.
