NYPD Working on 'Talking' Guns to Prevent Friendly Fire
According to FOX News, the NYPD has initiated preliminary discussions about such devices with the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNL), a government research lab. Ideas include using radio frequency tags that would allow cops to precisely locate other cops in the city, and gun-to-gun infrared sensors that would warn nearby officers whenever another removed his pistol from the holster.
At this point, the ideas are only that (the radio frequency tags strike the PNL as impractical), but the PNL is set to speak to the NYPD next week. Let's hope that these discussions are fruitful, and serve to protect those who serve and protect us. [From: FOX News]
