LOS ANGELES, Ca. - Los Angeles Police Department, Deputy Chief, Terry Hara is addressing a Solutions Presentation Theater session sponsored by Pelican Products, at the International Association of Chief's of Police Show in San Diego, on the first day of the exhibition, Sunday, November 9th at noon.

Deputy Chief Hara will speak on a case study of problem solving a highly sensitive public/law enforcement issue. He also specifically highlights the collaboration between public and private sectors to address law enforcement needs. Such partnership resulted in the creation of a state-of-the-art unique flashlight to meet stringent requirements. Pelican welcomed the challenge and now equips the entire LAPD force with the 7060 LED.

After Hara's presentation, Pelican plans to raffle off nearly $11,000 worth of their high-tech 7060 and 8060 LED flashlights.

The International Association of Chiefs of Police has long had a reputation for providing top-notch education on the most pressing law enforcement topics. That is why more than 15,000 law enforcement professionals will be attending the 115th Annual IACP Conference and Exposition in San Diego, California, USA from November 8-12, 2008. With renowned keynote speakers, forums and technical workshops, and the largest exhibit hall of products and services for the law enforcement community, this must attend event should be on your calendar.

About the flashlights being raffled:

The Pelican 7060 LED is a compact tough-as-nails duty/tactical light that blasts a brilliant white beam of 130 lumens for a full 90 minutes without the loss of intensity. This is due to an extremely efficient, light weight Lithium Ion rechargeable battery and next generation LED lamp technology.

The light also boasts "first-of-its-kind" three-way switch technology (tail cap and side-switches) that allows officers to change from tactical to patrol mode in seconds. Additionally, the light features a low battery warning function which makes the light blink increasingly quicker as the charge subsides.

Weighing in at 10 ounces, the 7060 is less than half the weight of existing standard law enforcement flashlights and its smaller size (8.65 inches) allows more space on an officer's duty belt for other equipment. Its high-impact, engineering-grade resin construction is virtually indestructible and incorporates Pelican's distinctive faceted design. Also, the castle-top lens shroud allows the officer to see if the light is on while it stands vertical.

The Pelican 8060 LED features an industry-leading, 4 hours of peak (6 hours total) burn time thanks to its Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH) rechargeable battery. Advanced, efficient LED technology allows the light to blast 190 lumens of clean, bright light at peak. For increased utility, the 8060 LED can also function with 4 "C" alkaline batteries in an emergency situation. Remove the NiMH battery pack, insert the alkaline batteries and the light is good for up to 12 hours of use.
