WATCH  | After ambush-style attacks on police officers in Alaska, Iowa, Texas and Florida this year, one detective has a solution he thinks can save lives. South Florida police officer Vasile Ciuperger used his personal experience in the field to create a product called “Stop Ambush.” 

Seeing some of the senseless killings of police throughout country, I think my product will make a big difference possibly between someone going home at the end of their shift.

The device is a 360-degree motion sensor that mounts on the roof of your car that tracks movement within a 25-foot radius. It alerts the driver if someone is heading their way and shows which direction they’re coming from.

 "My device creates that protection for you. It's a set of eyes around your car at all times," Ciuperger said.

The device could help with a key problem law enforcement officers face every day: inside police cars are laptops -- used to input all kinds of data -- and the screens can reduce their line of vision. 

"Every single police department in the country has a computer, which is nothing but a bright white light that blinds you-- especially at night, taking away your situational awareness," Cuiperger said.

The device uses red arrows and beeping sounds to grab the attention of officers. “You could have six people approaching you from six different directions, and you will have six arrows showing you" says Cuiperger.

The "Stop Ambush" device is five years in the making. While it’s not in law enforcement vehicles yet, that may soon change. It is available online at stopambush.com, with a price tag of $500.
