Thermal Imagers for Law Enforcement

By Flir Systems Australia

Thermal imaging cameras are the perfect tools for security and law enforcement applications

Thermal imaging cameras produce a crisp image in the darkest of nights. Contrary to other technologies, thermal imaging cameras need no light whatsoever to produce a crisp image. They can see through light fog and smoke, in practically all weather conditions. This makes them the perfect tools for security and law enforcement applications.

Law enforcement missions require officers to respond in a moment’s notice. FLIR’s line of thermal camera systems for law enforcement operations give officers the tactical advantage they need to respond effectively and safely, whenever they’re called.

FLIR Systems thermal imaging cameras are being used worldwide by police and customs departments and by private security companies that are sending walking patrols out to secure an area.

Thermal imaging cameras do not only produce a clear image in total darkness, they are also extremely useful during daylight. Thermal contrast is extremely difficult to mask. Someone trying to hide in shadows or bushes and people that are trying to camouflage themselves, will become clearly visible on a thermal image. Thermal imaging cameras are also not blinded by glare from the sun.

They produce a crisp image in practically all weather conditions. FLIR Systems thermal imagers are powerful tools in the fight against crime. They allow security professionals and law enforcement officers can see suspects in total darkness, through smoke, and light foliage without revealing their own location.

Furthermore, thermal contrast is extremely difficult to mask. This means that during night-time you will clearly see animals that are hidden in trees or bushes. Their natural camouflage will not help them to hide anymore. Thermal imaging cameras are widely used by professional documentary makers and hunters worldwide.
