Product Update


The Police Chief keeps you on the cutting edge of law enforcement technology with monthly product announcements. For free in-depth information, visit http://www.theiacp.org/pubinfo/pc/ and insert the product number on the Reader Response Form (ideal when requesting information from more than one company). Items about new or improved products are based on news releases supplied by manufacturers and distributors; IACP endorsement is in no way implied.

Escape mask
The Potomac Emergency Escape Mask from I.B.N. Protection Products is designed to protect against nuclear, biological, and chemical threats. It comes vacuum-sealed in a foil pouch, weighs less than eight ounces, and fits into a briefcase, desk drawer, or glove compartment. Its two particulate filters surround a military-grade activated charcoal designed to provide protection against anthrax, cyanide, sarin, smallpox, and other harmful agents. The two large filters permit high volume airflow, enabling heavy breathing during an escape. The bright yellow color makes the wearer easier to identify in an emergency situation.

Work gear
Gorgonz Performance Work Gear is designed to protect wearers from extreme weather conditions. Products include ear warmers, cold-weather gloves featuring 180os Exhale Heating System, warm-weather gloves, and the EvapCool hat, which is designed to keep the sun out of the wearer's face and allow excess heat to escape through its Hydroweave fabric.

Radiation detector
International Medcom's Radalert 50 is a lightweight, handheld nuclear radiation detector designed to measure alpha, beta, gamma, and x-radiation. It features a user-set alert feature that can be set to alarm above the normal background radiation level. A red LED blinks and a beeper chirps (the chirp can be muted) with each count of radiation detected. The Radalert 50 uses a Geiger-Mueller sensor to detect nuclear radiation and measure levels of radiation.

Weapons rack
Spacesaver Corporation's new Universal Weapons Rack is designed to meet the needs of law enforcement, the military, and others. The weapons rack is manufactured of durable, fully welded, heavy-gauge steel, and the cabinets have built-in, folding, retractable doors and locking bars designed to meet physical security requirements for conventional arms, ammunitions, and explosives. Doors, sides, and backs of cabinets are perforated with a diamond mesh pattern to allow visible counts or weapon inventory while doors remain closed and locked. Cabinets come in two heights (44.88 inches and 61.38 inches), and interior accessories can be easily configured—and reconfigured—to accommodate storage of a wide variety of weapon types (long-barrel and hand guns), gear, optics and spare barrels.

Vehicle immobilizer
Wilson Locking Systems introduces CuffLock, designed to render vehicles immobile in parking enforcement and other noncritical situations.

The unit weighs six pounds. The arms of the device are coated with a polyurethane epoxy designed to prevent scratches to rims and hubs, and the device is powder coated in bright lime green for visibility.
