The Foundation recently made a grant to the Palm Beach Gardens Police Department for the purchase and installation of an ATAC 360° high resolution thermal imaging system on the newly acquired all-hazards special response vehicle.
Mounted on the Department’s new TK-4 tactical vehicle it will allow Officers to detect individuals who may be hiding from the Police. The vehicle will be used during hazardous incident such as hurricanes, severe storms and high-risk events that fall outside of standard Police operations.
The camera system provides a 360° pan & 135° tilt capability to monitor surrounding environments and observe suspicious activity from the safety of the vehicle. Officers can monitor the full perimeter in darkness, weather and over long distances and spot potential criminal activity or safety hazards. It is manufactured by Nord Atlantic USA in Miami, FL
