Torrance, CA · September 17, 2007
Pelican™ Products Regional Sales Manager Andy Johnson recently delivered 50 of the premier 7060 LED flashlights to Pelican IACP booth contest winners, Montgomery Township Police Department, in New Jersey.
“The 7060 LED is a state-of-the-art law enforcement tool and we are pleased to provide them to the Montgomery Township Police Department,” said Pelican CEO Lyndon J. Faulkner. “It’s extremely gratifying to provide an instrument that will make the officer’s job a little safer.”
Law enforcement professionals at IACP 2006 last year received their first glimpse of the 7060 prototype months before the flashlight made a significant splash as the official flashlight for nearly 10,000 officers in the Los Angeles Police Department.
“We are pleased to have this cutting-edge light in our equipment arsenal and look forward to putting it through its paces,” said Michael Beltranena, Director of Police Services for Montgomery Township. “Keeping our officers safe on the street is our number one priority and I’m confident that the7060 LED will be a great tool to that end.”
Pelican Products was selected by the LAPD to work with the Department’s senior staff and rank-and-file officers to collaborate on creating the 7060, which was designed, engineered, and produced at the company’s Torrance, California corporate headquarters (about 15 miles south of the city of Los Angeles).
The 7060 LED is a compact tough-as-nails duty/tactical flashlight 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 flashlight 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 flashlight 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 flashlight is on while it stands vertical.
