MINIMUM Ranges according to the Operator Manuals:
DESL: Speed Mode 50 ft (15 m) Range Mode: 10 ft (3 m) Weather Mode: 250 ft (76 m)
DETC: Speed Mode 50 ft (15 m) Range Mode: 15 ft (5 m) Weather Mode: 250 ft (76 m)
TSS: Speed Mode 50 ft (15 m) Continuous Mode: 50 ft Weather Mode: 200 ft
If the LEO was holding a LIDAR gun outside his window, with his arm extended, it is possible that it was a DESL, as he could have both looked thru the Head Up Display to target a vehicle and also viewed the speed/distance on the Rear Panel Display, at the same time. I doubt it was a DETC or a TSS, as they both have to be held up to a person's eye in order to be able to both target a vehicle and view the speed.
I am sure it was either a TruSpeed S or one of the smaller Dragons. His arm was not extended like somebody about to shoot a firearm, his arm was out the window in he was leaning against the window opening, with his shoulder back against the vertical part of the window opening, with the meaty part of the tricep leaning along the window/door frame to support the lidar unit up against his face IE forming a steady view point.
