IACP 2010: Best of Show

The most interesting things at this year's IACP in Orlando were new revisions of existing products.

December 22, 2010  |  by Melanie Basich and David Griffith

DisposaCone: Traffic Cones

Sometimes the best thing at any trade show is a widget, some little something that makes everyone at the show go, "Wow! That's a great idea." At this IACP the coolest widget was the DisposaCone, a paper traffic cone. The laminated cardboard cones are bright orange with reflective strips and have adhesive bases that allow them to be fixed to almost any surface. They cost $7.99 for three and fold completely flat to save trunk space.

Draeger: Hybrid Mask

Available in early 2011, Draeger's hybrid mask allows you to switch between negative pressure and positive pressure and use a combination of PAPR and SCBA functionality with the same mask. What really sets this system apart is a flippable switch on the front of the mask that makes changing between positive and negative airflow fast and easy. And because there's so little power draw during operation, the system will provide airflow for 30 to 60 minutes on standard batteries.

Elbeco: Ladies' Choice Shirt

If you like Elbeco's Ladies' Choice pants, you can now have a matching set by adding the company's new Ladies' Choice shirts to your closet. All of Elbeco's women's shirts are now completely redesigned based on female officers' input to better fit a woman's body. You can choose from traditional uniform shirts in all fabric lines as well as tactical polo shirts.

Federal Signal: DTX In-Car Video

Known for its lightbars and license plate readers, Federal Signal is branching out. The company showed its new DTX In-Car Video system at the show. Cool features include 60 minutes of pre-event recording, automatic uploading of video files once the vehicle comes within wireless range of the station, and a powerful wireless microphone. It also includes live video streaming when used with a 3G network. The two-camera set-up includes a camera pointed at the back seat to monitor suspects.

MyClyns: Hand Sanitizer

On the trade show floor you shake a lot of hands, so a pumpful of ExtendaClyns hand sanitizer at the MyClyns booth was certainly welcome. It's a non-alcohol foam hand sanitizer and first-aid antiseptic designed to kill 99.9 percent of germs that can cause infection and disease. That means you can easily use it to clean up scrapes in the field. The product works in as little as 15 seconds and is supposed to remain effective for hours after application. Because it contains moisturizers and no alcohol, ExtendaClyns didn't dry out my hands like other hand sanitizers can. And it costs less than $4 per bottle.

Mustang Survival: Rescue Stick

Considering most law enforcement officers work near some form of water, it's a good idea to have a device on hand to rescue people from drowning. Mustang Survival's Rescue Stick is designed to allow officers to save people without endangering themselves. The "stick" can be accurately thrown to the victim more than 100 feet away and automatically inflates when it touches water to act as a flotation device. When used with the company's Throw Bag, the officer can easily retrieve the victim by pulling the heavy-duty rope attached to the Rescue Stick. Mustang Survival has several kits that include multiple Rescue Sticks, Throw Bags, and personal flotation devices for officers.
