All the hustle and bustle of the holiday season may do a great job of spreading good cheer, but the increased volume of foot and auto traffic this time of year also presents potentially hazardous situations for consumers and employees. Each year, efforts enforced by our local law enforcement keeps shoppers and businesses safe—making sure the “bad guys” don’t ruin your holiday spirit! This is why, for the month of December, FLIR wants to highlight the courage in these efforts by recognizing law enforcement as our local heroes.
In combination with our airborne systems, law enforcement agencies use FLIR’s Skywatch mobile observation towers during the holiday season. These elevated platforms allow for effective parking lot surveillance by providing unobstructed views—assisting themselves as great deterrents of car break-in’s and other common Holiday vandalism.
Also in action, Swiss security technology provider Nexo Group has developed a security solution using FLIR’s Security Cameras, to identify shoppers with suspicious heat patterns, indicating the potential presence of hidden, stolen products.
It’s great to see FLIR technology put to such an important use.
