Laser pointers for police and the military are not new. They have been a part of tactical presentations for years. A laser pointer, sometimes called a military laser pointer or an army laser pen, is a powerful teaching tool for humans and canines alike. Alpec’s laser pointers are incredibly accurate, making them highly sought after by human and K-9 trainers.  Our green laser pointers offer pinpoint accuracy up to a mile away, an efficient, effective support tool for teams and well-trained canines.

A Pen-sized Laser Pointer

Directing the attention of recruits during a presentation or of dogs during a training exercise is what Alpec laser pointer do best. Over the years, we’ve learned that police and law enforcement typically prefer our green laser pointers. Why green? Alpec’s most popular green laser pointer is the Sotonic Green Laser Pointer. The laser light is a rich green color, emitted from a slim, pen-sized tool. Outdoors during the day, green laser light is easy to see. It does not “disappear” as other colors might. It is ideal for targeting over vast distances – it’s light is visible for over a mile!

Safer than Flares

Laser pointers can help military and law enforcement personnel do their job more efficiently. The powerful and bright green lasers are easy to see over long distances. They are also used for military landing zones at night. They are much easier to use than a flare and can create marked areas that are safe for helicopters to land.

Animals respond well to green as well. According to Chief Tim Barfield and other K-9 trainers, green is the preferred color for training dogs. It allows for contrast to the red often used by SWAT teams.

Keep in mind that outdoors during the day, most laser light colors seem to disappear in sunlight. Our green laser pointers are 30 times brighter than red making them the best choice for most conditions. Need red and green? We’ve got you. Alpec’s Duo Red and Green Laser Pointer emits both red and green light for those times when more is more.
