Law enforcement expo brings agencies together in Savannah

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - Law enforcement agencies from all over the United States are coming together in Savannah.

An expo hosted by multiple companies gave departments a look at the latest in technology and training on Wednesday.

From new lighting to infrared camera systems, officers were able to check out the newest items on the market. Another big one was aviation improvements for agencies like the Coast Guard and Georgia State Patrol.

"With the bad tragedies that's happened in the past weeks and months, aircraft is another view. Another angle that they can look at from up above and get a better perspective of what's going on in the situation so they know how to move their people around safely," said Glenn Patterson of Helinet Technologies.

Agencies in attendance on Wednesday were also given the chance to hop into a safety seminar to learn from a series of experts.
