Stalker Police Lidar Sets the Standard for Laser Speed Acquisition and Tracking Accuracy

Stalker’s hand-held Lidar guns are the smallest and lightest hand-held police laser guns available. Not only do you get the accuracy and reliability that Stalker is famous for, but you also get a lidar gun that is lightweight and ergonomically designed to be comfortable and easy to hold throughout an entire shift.

Lidar RLR

Held to a Higher Standard - The U.S. Military Standard

Designed to withstand the punishment of modern policing, the Lidar RLR is the only MIL-STD-810H Transit Drop Test Certified police Lidar gun on the market today. Durable, waterproof, and dustproof, it is the Lidar gun built for the real world.

Four unique modes allow you to define school and work zones, track targets around fences, trees, and signs, scan traffic for vehicles following too close, and use your lidar even when the weather conditions are nowhere near ideal. Wireless connectivity, data logging, and following-too-close mode are all included standard. The RLR offers a handheld range of over 4,000 feet (1.2 km) and a tripod range of over 9,000 feet (2.7 km) and can store up to 3,000 data sets.

The Stalker XLR and XS police Lidar guns

Lidar XLR/XS

The XLR and XS police lidar were designed to be the smallest and lightest hand-held lidar guns on the market, but did not sacrifice quality, accuracy, or durability to get there. With a rechargeable battery that can easily last between 2-3 shifts and a weight of just 2.3 lbs. (1 kg), these workhorse lidar guns can acquire a target in less than 1/3 of a second.

Photo Enforcement - LidarCam 2

Automatically collect a video + multiple high-resolution photos every time you capture a traffic violation with built-in Automated License Plate Recognition (ANPR/ALPR) Technology. Hand-held or mounted to a tripod, in a patrol vehicle or from the side of the road, the Stalker LidarCam 2 is the next generation of photo enforcement.

Police Lidar FAQs

What is the Difference Between Radar and Lidar?

Radar uses radio waves and the Doppler effect to compute how fast vehicles are travelling, while Lidar uses infrared light.  Because radio waves are much larger than light waves, the beam width of a radar gun is much wider (around 200’ wide at 1,000’ away) than a police Lidar gun (around 3’ at 1,000’). This allows for much more precise targeting with Lidar in situations where monitoring one vehicle at a time is preferable, such as in dense traffic.

What is the difference between a standard Lidar gun and the LidarCam 2?

Both our standard Lidar guns (the RLR, XLR, and XS) and the LidarCam 2 use Lidar technology to detect vehicle speeds. The LidarCam 2 also has a built-in 8 MP camera that is able to capture both photo and video evidence to accompany your recorded speed measurements. This allows you to create evidence packages that can clearly identify any vehicle involved in a speed violation.

The LidarCam 2 can also be equipped with ALPR/ANPR license plate reading capabilities, which allows you to use the latest in technology to scan for wanted plates while you are scanning vehicles.

Why Don’t Lidar Guns Have Moving Mode?

Radar can be used while moving because the beam width is wider, allowing officers to scan traffic for speeders in a more general, hands-off manner. Lidar, on the other hand, uses a much narrower laser beam, and therefore must target each vehicle individually. This cannot be accomplished safely while the officer is driving.  

From How Far Away Can Vehicle Speeds Be Tracked By Lidar?

Our RLR and XLR police Lidar guns use a laser beam that can accurately track inbound vehicles over 4,000’ (1.2 km) away while handheld, and over 9,000’ (2.7 km) on away targets. Our XS model can track vehicles up to 2,000’ (.6 km) away.

Can Lidar Be Used When It Is Raining or Snowing?

All of Stalker’s police Lidar guns include our advanced Inclement Weather mode standard. While precipitation will reduce the usable range of your Lidar, Inclement Weather mode ensures that your Lidar will still perform at the highest level possible.

Can Lidar Be Used Through The Front Windshield?

Yes. Our advanced hardware and firmware ignores laser reflections from inside the patrol vehicle when aimed through the front windshield..
