With growing awareness of the safety and vulnerability of those boaters operating along our county's waterways, missions for public safety boats are expanding at a terrific rate.
Officers crewing these vessels fi nd themselves involved in missions as diverse as law enforcement, search and rescue, SCUBA operations, conducting harbor safety patrols, helping out disabled boaters, and lending a hand with homeland security missions. These calls can come any time, and in any weather. Day and night, in good weather and bad, maritime public safety vessels like police boats, fireboats, and harbor patrol vessels need to be equipped to answer the call. By extending and expanding the utility of these craft, FLIR's maritime thermal imaging cameras have proven their worth day in and day out, year after year.
With a little information, it is easy to appreciate and understand the utility of thermal imagining cameras when deployed in a maritime law enforcement role. While the recreational boater realizes the basic advantages of using FLIR's thermal imagers – simply being able to see at night and in bad weather provides an undeniable measure of added safety to these mariners – the professional operator, however, gets much more far-reaching benefits from a maritime thermal imager.
FLIR's maritime thermal imagers let public safety vessels respond at night and in bad weather, and help mariners navigate crowded waterways, with greater degrees of safety and confidence than ever before.
