RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif., (October 30, 2014) -
Adel Sayegh, founder and CEO of USS, has received an official
from California Peace Officers Association for his efforts to improve the
of police officers.
Sayegh worked with USS R&D team to develop a special vest for police
combines wireless video and GPS systems. In search and rescue operations, as
well as when tracking down suspects, the wireless system allows police
to view on their smartphones what the dog sees, and to follow the dog’s
movements via GPS.
Sayegh donated first batch of vests to San Bernardino Sheriff’s Department,
they were immediately put to use on the department’s bloodhounds. “The
to send the dog in pursuit of the suspect, or in search of a missing person,
then being able to see what the dog sees, means greater safety for the
deputies,” said Sayegh of the donated equipment. “The deputies can know
time if the suspect is armed, and in the case of missing persons search, can
the dog locate the subject, then locate the dog via GPS.”
received his recognition at the annual awards ceremony of the California
Officers Association, in front of over 2,000 representatives of state and
law enforcement agencies. As many departments around the country are facing
prospects of having to give up their bite dogs due to potential lawsuits
from pursued suspects, the new wireless video and GPS system promises to
that problem by offering video and GPS records of pursuits.
