The Prince George's County Police Department's Aviation Unit finished 3rd place in the 2011 FLIR Vision Awards.  The FLIR Vision Awards are presented annually to the airborne teams with the best video footage.

FLIR Systems thermal imagers are powerful tools in the fight against crime. Through state of the art thermal imaging technology, it allows law enforcement officers to see suspects in total darkness, through smoke, moderate fog, and light foliage. A FLIR thermal imager allows law enforcement officers to see the suspect, without revealing your location.
