Nortech donates Hot-N-Pop for HPD K9
Press Release from Hammond Police (Via Facebook):
The Hammond Police Department would like to thank Justin Thornhill and brother Michael Thornhill for their generous donation of a HOT-N-POP system which will ensure the safety of Hammond Police Department’s K9 officers and handlers.
This advanced door opening and temperature monitoring system was installed into the vehicle that was being utilized by The Assistant Chief of Police. Asst Chief Corkern’s vehicle was repurposed to accommodate K9 Moose and his handler and he now drives one of the oldest cars in our fleet. Thank you, Asst. Chief Corkern.
The HOT-N-POP system monitors vital components of the interior of the K9 vehicle, including temperature sensors. Under alarm conditions, the unit activates an S.O.S. horn honk signal, siren, light-bar activation and dual window drop to immediately equalize the internal temperature of the vehicle. The system also features the ability to release the K-9 from the vehicle by remote control worn in a holster.
Thank you for your support of our officers and our K9 partners!
