SHOT Show 2015: Officers Can Win ESS Eyewear at SHOT Show

This week at the Shooting Hunting and Outdoor Trade (SHOT) Show in Las Vegas ESS Eye Pro and Police Magazine are offering sworn officers an opportunity to win a new pair of ESS Eye Pro eyewear.

To enter, officers attending the show just need to go by the Police Magazine booth (#11979) and take a selfie wearing their most beat up, worn out pair of eyewear and send the image to Police Magazine editor David Griffith. Send the image as an e-mail attachment to [email protected] using the subject line: ESS Contest. Remember to include your name and cell number in the e-mail, so we can contact you if you win.

Your image will be posted in a special photo gallery on PoliceMag.com. Three winners will be selected on Thursday afternoon Jan. 22. Winners will be contacted at 3 p.m. (Pacific Time) and asked to go to the ESS booth (#20543) by 5 p.m. to pick out their new eyewear.

MIR (Mobile Incident Reporting) Systems is dedicated to making it easier for officers in the field to interact with dispatch, manage reports, and communicate with supervisors. MIR software was designed to look and function as easily as a smartphone app and operates on the company's durably designed Mobile Tablets. Using MIR tablets, officers can take high-def video and images, and the software will automatically attach the video or image to the incident report and classify itself in the report as evidence. Voice recognition allows an officer to dictate reports in minutes. Officers can also use the tablets to stream live video back to their supervisors.

Law Enforcement Software 2014

There's now a computer application to assist with just about every task in law enforcement.

Neck Index—Draw your handgun and hold it in a one-handed grip, then draw your flashlight, grip it in your non-shooting fist, and position the light against your neck on your non-shooting side. Now as you sweep with your body and your gun hand, your head and neck will naturally follow and so will the beam of your light. Pros: Works with small or large lights. Works well with tail cap-activated lights. Allows simultaneous illumination of both your sights and the target. Easy to search without muzzle sweep. Easy to transition into flashlight strike. Cons: Limits user to one-handed gun grip. Can draw fire to head. Can create excess flash on sights.
