Roger served over 20 years with the NYPD, where he spearheaded the NYPD’s first dedicated facial recognition unit. The unit has conducted more than 8,500 facial recognition investigations, with over 3,000 possible matches and approximately 2,000 arrests. Roger’s enhancement techniques are now recognized worldwide and have changed law enforcement’s approach to the utilization of facial recognition technology.
For this Stinger, Streamlight had just upgraded the C4 LED from 180 lumens to a blazing 350 lumens and 24,000 candela on the brightest of three intensity settings.
QuiqLiteX puts out from 20 to 150 lumens for the dual white LED version and from 20 to 75 lumens for the colored options: tactical red and white, and blue and white.
Law enforcement officers can now choose from a variety of high-lumen flashlights to help illuminate dark alleys, vehicles, or rooms. These lights can improve officer safety by revealing threats, and assist in searches for trace evidence in low-light scenarios. Photos courtesy of vendors.
Just five years ago, a 200-lumen flashlight was considered amazingly bright. Now, advances in technology have made it possible to increase the power of even small flashlights to emit beyond 500 lumens of light, which is more than enough to illuminate a room and cause temporary blindness in suspects.
The number of new product offerings from Streamlight has been impressive, especially among its ProTac line of compact handhelds. I've been using the company's newest, the ProTac HL, and after only a few weeks of testing, I'm sold.
Designed to be purpose mounted for hands-free use, either on a helmet or other gear, this light has four high-discharge LED bulbs that produce more than ample working light.
5.11 Tactical's ATAC line of lights includes the PLx pen light, powered by two AAA cell batteries, and the L2, powered by two CR123A batteries. Both offer a quality fit and finish.
