Police now ‘see’ through walls and know if you’re home

The Range-R is a piece of military equipment that police are using now to check if there’s someone in a building.

The Radar-R is handheld and can detect whether there is human life inside a building.

Police forces increasingly are taking advantage of the technology behind military equipment initially designed for combat.

Sometimes, though, the police might be coy about which of these gadgets they use to protect and serve.

USA Today reports that, for a couple of years now, some police forces have been using a device that can determine whether a building is occupied — without having to enter the premises. However, this information only came to light when a police officer at a suppression hearing in a Denver court said that he’d used a Range-R.
