Illuminating Gear

From flashlights to weapon lights, cops rely on a variety of illuminating sources to brighten scenes, spotlight subjects or simply highlight paperwork. Because officers depend so much on lighting gear, designers strive to continually improve devices to accommodate the job’s specific needs and uses. This year’s updates include greater battery life, laser focus and lightweight materials. Keep reading to see what other features could help law enforcement professionals expose crime and stay safe while serving communities.

Fenix TK30
B r i g h t   B e a m
The Fenix TK30 flashlight may look like other tactical torches, but its white laser light is a key differentiator. The laser simulates a fluorescent crystal that projects a crisper, more focused beam. The 500 lumens scan more than 3,900 feet on high brightness mode. Even on the low brightness setting, the beam travels nearly 2,000 feet. The flashlight is fashioned with two switches: a tail switch powers on and off, while a side switch changes mode, including strobe. A battery indicator serves as a convenient reminder to recharge the lithium-ion battery so you’re never left in the dark.
MSRP $269.95.

SureFire Fury Dual-Fuel Tactical LED Flashlight
F u e l e d   f o r   D u t y
Dependable and durable can be as important characteristics for a flashlight as are lumens and battery life. The SureFire Fury Dual-Fuel Tactical LED Flashlight boasts a body of high-strength aerospace aluminum, which, along with its tailcap, is knurled for a secure grip. It’s also mil-spec hard anodized for high resistance to abrasions and corrosion. In addition to traditional operations, this updated flashlight model can also be used as a searchlight. A micro-textured reflector shapes a beam with a bright central area focus that reaches up to 315 meters.
MSRP $199.

Pelican 7620 (Gen 1) Tactical Flashlight
C h a r g e d   U p
Rechargeable batteries have long been a mainstay in flashlight features, so of course, the Pelican 7620 (Gen 1) Tactical Flashlight can run off a 18650 lithium-ion rechargeable power source. But it’s also compatible with AA and CR123 batteries, so with a quick swap, the illuminator is fully powered and ready to work. Cops also will appreciate the four modes — high, medium, low and strobe — which can be configured into five different combinations. The body is crafted from aluminum with type III anodized accompanied by a high-carbon steel clip.
MSRP $80.95.

Streamlight TLR-7 and TLR-7A
S m a l l   a n d   M i g h t y
Add a powerful light source without adding weight to your handgun. At a mere 2.4 ounces, the TLR-7 and TLR-7A (pictured) compact rail-mounted tactical light barely adds any extra weight to your grip. But the 500 lumens and 5,000 candela peak beam is a powerful weapon to highlight a scene up to 140 meters. The single lithium battery can last up to 90 minutes of nonstop runtime. Streamlight engineers also designed a one-handed snap-on system with a side attach/detach mechanism for quick action and officer safety. Both models accommodate ambidextrous operation: TLR-7 has left/right power side switches and TLR-7A features a rear on/off engagement. The mount is cut from machined aircraft aluminum with a black anodized finish.
MSRP $225.75.
