9/11 Monument at the Jasper, Texas County Courthouse
JASPER, TEXAS- LRG is proud to announce the unveiling of a 9/11 Monument on Jasper County Courthouse grounds Saturday September 10th.

This special feature was granted by the FDNY and will allow generations for the future to come see, read and experience this piece of American history.

The adoption of thermal cameras in mainstream security has increased considerably over the last decade, and Oregon-based FLIR Systems has been a leading innovator in the industry. FLIR is recognized as having the broadest range of thermal security cameras— from affordable consumer-oriented cameras to military-grade imagers used for border security and force protection.
Now, with the emergence of advanced video analytics, FLIR is proving that thermal’s inherent image quality makes it an ideal match. Thermal cameras with analytics have been field-proven to provide more efficient operation, fewer false and nuisance alarms, and easier alarm assessment than any other technology in the industry.
