IACP 2012: Best of Show

Technology tends to be the emphasis of the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) conference.

Advanced Interactive Systems' PRISim Suite connects to the MPRI driving simulator.

Use-of-Force Simulators

High-tech shoot-don't-shoot scenarios let you train realistically without stepping onto the street. You don't want to find out in the middle of a gunfight that you need to work on your judgment, tactics, and reaction time under stress. That's why systems that immerse you in realistic scenarios—complete with lethal and less-lethal options, and even physical consequences in some cases—are so valuable in training. View our slideshow of seven use-of-force simulator systems that provide this important training.

Thermal imaging makes us of the difference in temperature between an object and its surroundings. This image was taken from a Star SAFIRE system mounted to a fixed-wing PC-12 in Hillsboro, Ore.

Thermal Imaging

A high-end thermal imaging system such as FLIR's Star SAFIRE HD offers law enforcement officers a powerful search tool for detecting heat-emitting objects across large search areas. The system offers a high-definition infrared camera mounted to an airborne unit that produces both EO (electro-optic) color and IR (infrared) white-hot images. Photos courtesy of FLIR Systems.

In addition to recording eight hours of high-definition video and audio with a 71-degree field of view, the new LE-2 from VieVu on-body camera system is facial recognition compatible and can live-stream as it records. It easily clips to a uniform to record evidence for later use in court. The LE-2 requires the Veripatrol software system, which utilizes a Digital Signature process that marks each video with a digital hash certificate to prove that the video has not been altered. If you already have a previous generation VieVu camera, you can easily upgrade to the LE-2 system. It will be available in the first quarter of 2012.
