5 police technologies that seem too good to be true

By PoliceOne Staff

As technology progresses, the law enforcement community has found numerous ways they can extend their resources to better police their communities. But some of these technologies are so futuristic, they just seem too good to be true.

Below are five of the coolest technology creations geared toward police.

1. The Robocop headset

Golden-I, developed by Kopin Corporation, is a device that operates by voice commands and head movements to allow police to access vital information and uses infrared to look through walls. 

2. The app that could stop killers in our classrooms

We have an app for everything these days. The Hero911 app works in two parts, for police and for teachers, to alert when an active shooter is present in schools. It alerts nearby officers when a teacher has indicated a threat, giving the exact location. 

A panic button speed dials 911, while the system immediately bursts an alert to the smart phones of every teacher in the school AND every police offer with the Hero911 app within a 10-20 mile radius. 

3. The new tech that has cops surveying crime as it happens

Imagine Google Earth with a rewind button and the ability to play back the movement of cars and people as they scurry about the city. You don’t have to imagine it. It’s real and it’s called Persistent Surveillance Systems, a wide-area surveillance system that can record an entire city in real time.

4. High-tech bullet improves hit probability
 

Advanced Ballistics Concepts, LLC, a ballistics research and development company, unveiled the first-ever multi-part bullet earlier this year, which is designed to unlock and expand to a predetermined diameter and pattern of spread upon leaving the tip of a rifled barrel, dramatically increasing the chances for the shooter to hit his target in ultra-close and mid-range engagements.

5. StarChase’s GPS tagging technology ends chases

StarChase is the maker of a GPS launcher that enables law enforcement agencies to shoot a tracking device onto a suspect’s car to keep tabs on the vehicle. The GPS technology will relay the location of the suspected criminal’s car to a computer system, allowing law enforcement officers to follow the individual electronically rather than engage in dangerous, high-speed chases.
