New Tool Gives Cheyenne Police an Eye in the Sky [PHOTOS]
The Cheyenne Police Department has a new tool in its arsenal.
Thanks to a public safety grant, the department was able to purchase a $140,000 mobile observation platform, giving police an eye in the sky.
Officer Kevin Malatesta says the M.O.P. has multiple cameras, including a 360 degree camera, a pan and zoom camera and a thermal camera.
The unit also features gunshot recognition technology, enabling police to pinpoint where a gun was fired and record real-time video of the incident.
Malatesta says the public can expect to see the M.O.P. at critical incidents and major events such as Superday and Cheyenne Frontier Days.
