Behind the scenes look at Maumelle PD's new infrared cameras


MAUMELLE, Ark. (KTHV) – The Maumelle Police Department is showing off their new infrared cameras and sending out a warning to would-be thieves.

"If it's a dog, cat, mouse, deer, or a person it's going to show up on that," said Captain Jim Hansard. "Once the light goes away it's pitch black and you can't make any detail out of the woods or the fence over there. With this it's mounted to the spotlight on the unit so we can make out all of that stuff."

Hansard gave THV11 a close-up look of the cameras, which are now being used to catch car break-in thieves. "The worst nightmare an officer has is going into something blind and not being able to know what's going on," added Hansard. "So it really helps out."

The cameras cost roughly $5,000 a piece. Hansard says they will be used for stand offs and hostage situations in addition to regular surveillance.
