POMPANO BEACH, Fla., Sept. 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Solpower Corporation, Symbol (OTCPink: SOCR), today announced it has submitted a preliminary patent application for a new and exciting technology that could change how police handle interactions with suspects and even alter the widely controversial "Stop and Question" laws many states have. The new technology, referred to as a Visual Recognition Indicator (VRI), will help to empower law enforcement officers with the ability to know if a subject possibly committed a crime. The company feels this software installed in a mobile device will be in every patrol car in the country and has already identified several police departments to beta test the product.
Using a new process called Image Presentation and Response Measurement, and a small, readily available plug in sensor, the software measures Recognition Responses, or reactions to something a subject is familiar with. The software would run in a standard smartphone or a device much like a smartphone and be carried by officers, the same way they carry electronic breathalyzers to test blood-alcohol content today. Only this device will not test to see if a subject had consumed alcohol. Instead, a short, sixty-second test can verify if a subject recognizes a specific crime scene. Lab tests have shown, the device is about 98 percent accurate.
The company cautions that this is not a lie detector, nor does a positive response necessarily mean the suspect has in-fact committed a crime. Instead, this is a means to justify further questioning, and help an investigator to build a legal basis for reasonable suspicion, which could allow further questioning, and possibly even the right to take a subject into custody for questioning. A positive response on such a device could also elicit a voluntary admission of guilt giving the officer probable cause to arrest a suspect. Solpower also plans to add the ability to record the subject giving consent to administer the test using audio, video, and on-screen signature saved to a time stamped, encrypted file. This, the company feels, will make it an invaluable tool for law enforcement.
The company's new Chief Executive Officer, Charles Nienstedt described the company's goals by saying, "Solpower is much more than anyone yet knows. We have only just scratched the surface, and we have an entire portfolio of new technology, and software that can possibly change the face of many fields including health care, legal, law enforcement, business operations, and much more. Now that we are up to date with our disclosures, and we are actively developing these technologies, we will be announcing these breakthroughs as they take place."
