In law enforcement, the challenges of speed enforcement and crash scene reconstruction demand tools that are not only accurate but also efficient and reliable.
Laser Technology, Inc. (LTI) has established itself as a leader in this field with its innovative speed and reconstruction mapping products. These products are not just tools; they are solutions to real-world problems faced by police departments every day.
Let’s take a look at five challenges in traffic safety and how LTI’s products, including the TruSpeed S Series, TruSpeed LR, TruVISION, TruAngle setup for total station and TruPoint 300, are revolutionizing law enforcement operations.
Challenge: Discreet speed enforcement
One challenge in traffic law enforcement is conducting speed enforcement operations without drawing attention. There’s a need for tools that are compact and easy to deploy from various vehicles, combined with robustness for longevity and a user-friendly interface suitable for different lighting conditions.
Solution: TruSpeed S Series combines stealth and durability
The TruSpeed S Series addresses the need for discreet speed enforcement. Its stealthy design allows for easy storage and deployment from cruisers or motorcycles, making it ideal for catching speed violators unawares. The robust build ensures longevity, and the user-friendly interface with a four-button operation and Blackmask LCD screen is perfect for varying light conditions. Moreover, their quick acquisition time and affordable price point make them accessible to departments of all sizes. This series represents a solution to the challenge of maintaining a low profile while ensuring the durability and reliability required in law enforcement tools.
Challenge: Long-distance speed monitoring
Another issue is measuring vehicle speeds from a distance, which is crucial for monitoring traffic without being noticed by drivers. This requires tools that are simple to use and have features to counteract devices that could interfere with speed measurement, ensuring consistent and reliable operation.
Solution: TruSpeed LR masters distance and interference
The TruSpeed LR is designed to overcome the challenges of distance in speed enforcement. With its capability to measure speeds from up to 4,000 feet away, officers can effectively and safely monitor traffic without being detected by drivers. Its simplicity, with a one-button, one-function menu, ensures ease of use. Additionally, its anti-jam function is a crucial feature in areas where laser jammers are used, ensuring the device’s uninterrupted operation and reliability.
Challenge: Comprehensive evidence collection
In traffic law enforcement, collecting robust evidence, like high-definition images and videos, is essential, especially for legal proceedings. Tools that can perform these tasks effectively, even in low-light conditions, and are easy to handle, significantly aid in enforcing traffic laws.
Solution: TruVISION revolutionizes evidence collection
TruVISION is a game-changer in traffic law enforcement, offering a comprehensive solution for evidence collection. This advanced device not only measures speed and range but also captures high-definition images and videos of infractions. This feature is invaluable in legal proceedings, addressing the challenge of providing robust evidence in traffic violation cases. The unit’s autofocus, auto iris and auto shutter features make it incredibly user-friendly. It’s also capable of night operation with an additional illuminator, and its ergonomic design allows for handheld use.
Challenge: Efficient crash scene reconstruction
Quick and efficient reconstruction of crash scenes is vital to reduce traffic disruption and enhance safety. Tools that simplify this process and integrate with software for quick data visualization and mapping help in clearing crash scenes faster and more effectively.
Solution: TruAngle for Total Station streamlines crash scene reconstruction
The TruAngle setup, when used with TruSpeed SXB or TruPulse 200X, transforms into a total station, enabling crash scene reconstruction. It simplifies and speeds up the process, allowing for quick clearance of scenes. Its simple setup and operation allow for quick clearance of crash scenes, reducing the likelihood of secondary crashes. Integration with LTI’s QuickMap 3D software facilitates on-the-go mapping and results visualization on any smart device, streamlining the process from scene to office. This rapid deployment is essential for reducing traffic disruption and enhancing officer safety, addressing the crucial need for efficiency in crash scene management.
Challenge: Precise mapping in various environments
Precise mapping, particularly in diverse environments such as indoor crime scenes or for detailed vehicle damage assessments, is crucial. Tools with features like internal angle encoders and visible lasers facilitate accurate mapping in these situations.
Solution: TruPoint 300 can map indoors and outdoors
For detailed reconstruction, especially in indoor settings or for vehicle damage assessments, the TruPoint 300 stands out. Its internal angle encoder and visible laser allow for precise mapping in various environments. This capability is particularly beneficial for accurately mapping indoor crime and fire scenes, as well as performing detailed crush measurements on vehicles. This technology offers a more efficient and accurate alternative to traditional methods.
Customer appreciation and confidence
These products are highly valued for their pinpoint accuracy and ease of use. The LIDAR technology in the speed measurement tools ensures that the targeted vehicle is precisely identified, a crucial factor in traffic law enforcement. In mapping products, accuracy, simplicity and quick data acquisition are the main benefits appreciated by law enforcement agencies.
Conclusion: A legacy of innovation in LIDAR technology
LTI’s focus on LIDAR technology for over 37 years has culminated in these specialized products that not only meet but exceed the demands of modern law enforcement. By addressing key challenges such as discretion in speed enforcement, evidence collection, efficient crash scene reconstruction and precise mapping in diverse environments, LTI’s products enhance the capabilities of police departments, contributing significantly to road safety and justice in traffic law enforcement.
