Water Patrols and Thermal Imagers

A TI can help officers monitor large bodies of water and long shorelines, scanning for boaters in distress or potential criminal activity.


While water safety and patrol are not applications for every police department, there are plenty of officers who have to worry about rescue and law enforcement activities around bodies of water. A thermal imager can help make rescue situations safer by identifying hazards as well as potential non-rescue situations. The TI also gives patrol officers a wonderful tool to observe areas without notifying potential bad guys that the good guys are nearby.

And as you know, when the bad guys don't know we're watching...things get interesting.
