Laser Technology, Inc. (LTI) and the IACP's National Law Enforcement Challenge (NLEC) organization joined forces to educate applicants about changes to the program. LTI and NLEC representatives co-hosted three webcasts, from October 2013, to February 2014, preparing applicants for the application process.
The new vision of the challenge is to expand law enforcement involvement in traffic safety as a priority, reduce crashes and resulting injuries and deaths, detect and deter crime, create safer communities, and improve quality of life in communities across the country. The International Association of Chiefs of Police strives to boost participation, share best practices and create sustainability of these practices beyond the challenge.
LTI TruCAM and TruSpeed Sxb
with LaserSoft SpeedCapture App
were the prizes given to the
webcast attendee winners.
The National Law Enforcement Challenge webcast series highlighted program improvements, as well as requirements, deadlines, awards, and more. In conjunction with entering the NLEC by May 2014, webcast attendees were entered in a drawing for a chance to win LTI laser-based speed and distracted driving enforcement equipment. The LTI 20/20 TruCAM, a fully integrated laser speed device and digital video camera capable of capturing high resolution images of a violator's license plate was one of the prizes in the drawing. The LTI 20/20 TruSpeed Sxb, a cell phone bracket and a license for the LaserSoft SpeedCapture App was also among the list of prizes. This combination can be leveraged to be used as a complete speed and distracted driving enforcement system.
LTI gifted one TruCAM to applicants, who attended the first webcast, and one TruCAM and one TruSpeed Sxb package to attendees of webcasts two and three, totaling five complete enforcement systems for NLEC participants. Recipients of the three TruCAM lasers are Gloucester Township Police Department from Laurel Springs, NJ; Calvert County Sheriff's Office from Prince Frederick, MD; and Carol Stream Police Department from Carol Stream, IL. TruSpeed Sxb package winners include St. Mary's County Sheriff's Office from Leonardtown, MD and Hall County Sheriff's Office from Gainesville, GA.
The entire LTI Traffic Safety Team sends congratulations to the winners and is confident that these units will be put to good use by the departments and their goals to increase traffic safety in their community.
