1 21 st Century Technology for Law Enforcement Prepared by Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department “Technology Exploration Project” Prepared by Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department “Technology Exploration Project”

2 The Revitalization of Law Enforcement Law enforcement is undergoing a rebirth greater than any since the time of Sir Robert Peel The public is tired of being victimized  Victim’s “Bill of Rights” and Victims Rights Organizations  “3 Strike’s Laws”  Prison populations now exceed 1 million The demand for better, more effective law enforcement methods has never been greater Law enforcement is undergoing a rebirth greater than any since the time of Sir Robert Peel The public is tired of being victimized  Victim’s “Bill of Rights” and Victims Rights Organizations  “3 Strike’s Laws”  Prison populations now exceed 1 million The demand for better, more effective law enforcement methods has never been greater

3 Three Types of Technology Obsolete  Antiquated but Useful  Inexpensive Commercial Off the Shelf (COTS)  Commercially Available  Focus is on “cutting edge” (not yet established in the marketplace Emerging  May require a paradigm shift  Most fruitful because of collaborative efforts Obsolete  Antiquated but Useful  Inexpensive Commercial Off the Shelf (COTS)  Commercially Available  Focus is on “cutting edge” (not yet established in the marketplace Emerging  May require a paradigm shift  Most fruitful because of collaborative efforts

4 Major Emphasis Interventions without resorting to lethal force  Focus of Effort  Greatest progress has been in this area Stopping Vehicles  No immediate solutions foreseeable Detecting Contraband—especially Weapons!  Millimeter wavelength, infra-red, ultra-sound and a X-rays are some of the more promising approaches Tremendous advances have recently been achieved  Prototypes are becoming available now Interventions without resorting to lethal force  Focus of Effort  Greatest progress has been in this area Stopping Vehicles  No immediate solutions foreseeable Detecting Contraband—especially Weapons!  Millimeter wavelength, infra-red, ultra-sound and a X-rays are some of the more promising approaches Tremendous advances have recently been achieved  Prototypes are becoming available now

5 Light Emitting Diode Incapacitator (LEDI) Dazzling effect from multi-colored bright lights randomly blinking Promising as a debilitating less lethal option and/or as a cross-cultural, language independent signal Developer—Intelligent Optical Systems (IOS) Currently in prototype stage Dazzling effect from multi-colored bright lights randomly blinking Promising as a debilitating less lethal option and/or as a cross-cultural, language independent signal Developer—Intelligent Optical Systems (IOS) Currently in prototype stage

6 Dragon’s Egg Hand-deployed, 360 degree viewing device Live video sent through walls & windows to receiver outside Developer Chang Industries Commercially available (Cutting Edge COTS) Hand-deployed, 360 degree viewing device Live video sent through walls & windows to receiver outside Developer Chang Industries Commercially available (Cutting Edge COTS)

7 “OC Flashlight” Project TigerLight has spray dispenser in base and shoots a cone shaped mist Developer TigerLight Incorporated Commercially Available TigerLight has spray dispenser in base and shoots a cone shaped mist Developer TigerLight Incorporated Commercially Available Cobra Light has spray dispenser in lens area and shoots a stream Developer Shield Defense Commercially Available Project yielded double digit reductions in use of significant force (e.g. impact weapons)

8 “Pepperball” Project Uses powdered “OC” encapsulated in plastic pellets and launched from paintball guns Developer Pepperball Technologies Commercially Available Currently in use in custody facilities and some stations Uses powdered “OC” encapsulated in plastic pellets and launched from paintball guns Developer Pepperball Technologies Commercially Available Currently in use in custody facilities and some stations

9 Pepperball SA-4 Launcher (working name) Launches.68 caliber “pepperballs” effectively to about 30 feet Greater standoff than spray dispensers Developer Pepperball Technologies Preproduction Stage Launches.68 caliber “pepperballs” effectively to about 30 feet Greater standoff than spray dispensers Developer Pepperball Technologies Preproduction Stage

10 TASER Most effect nonlethal option project in the history of the LASD (90%+ effective) Currently used in field Developer is Taser International Commercially Available Most effect nonlethal option project in the history of the LASD (90%+ effective) Currently used in field Developer is Taser International Commercially Available

11 SkySeer (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) Small, hand-launched, semi-autonomous, lightweight, parachute recovery Less than five pounds in weight Pan-Tilt camera to ground viewing station Developer Chang Industries Preproduction Stage Small, hand-launched, semi-autonomous, lightweight, parachute recovery Less than five pounds in weight Pan-Tilt camera to ground viewing station Developer Chang Industries Preproduction Stage

12 Magnetic Acoustic Device Uses planar wave for maximum clarity with minimum degradation Developer HPV Technologies Prototype Stage (Currently in field trials at Special Enforcement Bureau) Uses planar wave for maximum clarity with minimum degradation Developer HPV Technologies Prototype Stage (Currently in field trials at Special Enforcement Bureau)

13 Active Denial System (ADS) $100 million dollar DoD Research Project Heats human skin to 130F in two seconds without tissue damage! Currently working on solid-state, hand-held version for law enforcement applications Developer Raytheon Currently in Prototype Stage $100 million dollar DoD Research Project Heats human skin to 130F in two seconds without tissue damage! Currently working on solid-state, hand-held version for law enforcement applications Developer Raytheon Currently in Prototype Stage

14 Most advanced system is from Israel Numerous other versions expected within the next 36 months Portable, battery operated, real- time, stand-off, 3D interface Developer is Camero Technologies Commercially available but very expensive (~$100K) Most advanced system is from Israel Numerous other versions expected within the next 36 months Portable, battery operated, real- time, stand-off, 3D interface Developer is Camero Technologies Commercially available but very expensive (~$100K) See-Through-The-Wall Radar (STTW Radar)

15 LASD has gained an international reputation for our efforts in the identification, development, exploitation, adaptation and integration of less lethal options Despite claims, all less lethal options are primitive to what is actually needed and desired LASD has gained an international reputation for our efforts in the identification, development, exploitation, adaptation and integration of less lethal options Despite claims, all less lethal options are primitive to what is actually needed and desired Less Lethal Munitions

16 Olfactory Agents Potpourri in reverse! Mammals experience revulsion by smells of other dead mammals and fecal matter Formulated to affect the olfactory and trigeminal nerves Malodorous may be the next generation of “chemical” agents Potpourri in reverse!

17 Prisoner Health Status Monitor Virtually undetectable and mounts out of reach of inmates Uses ultrasound to detect prisoners with respiratory difficulties Tremendous potential for suicidal or ill inmates who require constant supervision Virtually undetectable and mounts out of reach of inmates Uses ultrasound to detect prisoners with respiratory difficulties Tremendous potential for suicidal or ill inmates who require constant supervision

18 Gunfire Location Project (Shotspotter/Communicator) One of the most ambitious projects so far Detects gunfire and precisely plots (usually within 25 feet) the location on a digital map An “electronic interview” is then conducted to elicit help from neighbors A combination of technology, aggressive patrol support and resulting arrests are achieving a reduction in gunfire (celebratory and retalitory) One of the most ambitious projects so far Detects gunfire and precisely plots (usually within 25 feet) the location on a digital map An “electronic interview” is then conducted to elicit help from neighbors A combination of technology, aggressive patrol support and resulting arrests are achieving a reduction in gunfire (celebratory and retalitory)
