DHS makes covert CCTV available to local police

The Department of Homeland Security hosts a website called "Responder Knowledge Base" where it advertises a wide variety of military, law enforcement and first responder tools. Local and state law enforcement are authorized to buy any of these technologies with DHS funds. You can see a whole host of these tools here.

The following pieces of equipment enable covert video surveillance; James Bond-like, they are made to look like everyday objects.

Have you seen any of these in real life? 

The last one is particularly covert. It "monitors in total darkness."
