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.

Stalker's Police Lidar Guns

Lidar RLR

A durable, waterproof lidar gun built for the real world. Define school and work zones, track targets around fences, trees, and signs, 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.

Police Lidar FAQs

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.

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.  

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.

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.

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