Steiner, known for its optics for military and law enforcement, has announced that the Portland (Ore.) Police Bureau has adopted the new P-Series 7x50 binoculars for use by their Gang Enforcement Team and Federal Gang Task Force. The high-quality P-Series binoculars will play a crucial role in the vital surveillance and operative work performed by the gang enforcement unit.

"We are pleased to add the P750 binocular to our tactical equipment," said Portland Police Bureau Lieutenant Mike Krantz. "Steiner has a long-standing reputation for producing exceptional binoculars, and we are confident the P750 will provide sharp, crisp images that will keep our officers safe and allow them to perform their jobs to the best of their ability."

For optimum versatility the P-Series is available in five models ranging from full size to compact. Each delivers bright, three-dimensional images, sharp resolution and a wide field-of-view for fast image capture, high detail and quick target appraisal. From low light to full sun, extended surveillance to sudden action, there's a P-Series binocular to match any tactical situation.

"We are very excited to be working with the Portland Police Bureau," said Tom Frane, Steiner's VP of Sales, Marketing and Business Development. "We consulted with top law enforcement professionals to produce the new P-Series binoculars, and that due diligence has created a binocular line worthy of top law enforcement units. We look forward to a long partnership with the outstanding men and women of the Portland Police Bureau."

The 10x50mm, 7x50mm and 8x30mm porro prism models have a floating prism system that uses silicon lens mounts to absorb severe shock, impact and abuse without damage. The Multi-coated lenses are designed to optimize light transmission for superb performance in low light or hazy conditions. Steiner's Sports-Auto Focus System lets you focus each eyepiece only once, keeping images razor sharp from 20 yards to infinity.

The compact 10x26 and full-size 10x42 models' roof prism design makes them light and easy to carry for maximum mobility. Their bright 10x power images are perfect for sniper/spotter teams, border surveillance, patrol car and tactical operations.

Waterproof and fogproof for cold and wet conditions, P-Series binoculars feature rubber armor protection for a firm grip with or without gloves. As with all Steiner optics, they're covered by the Steiner Heritage Warranty – Steiner's promise of the highest standards of quality, dependability and customer satisfaction.
