As yesterday’s radio communications networks age and struggle to support new services demanded by today’s ever- changing public safety environment, decisions regarding critical communications networks need to be made sooner than expected. The decision is not only vital to the safety and productivity of today’s workforce, it’s a decision that must be far reaching enough to satisfy future needs over a 15-20 year useful life of the network infrastructure.

What makes P25 so special? Firstly, it was designed by public safety users in conjunction with radio manufacturers to... Continue Reading

We’ve heard from many Public Safety agencies that they’re pleased there are other P25 options to choose from once they get out of the proprietary web some vendors weave.

Genuine open standards are non-proprietary, so they’re not under the control of one vendor.

Last Friday, we paused to honor officers who lost their lives while performing their duty as a police officer, or through illness or other circumstances.

The Police Ode

Rest in peace, friend and colleague, for sun has now set.
We will remember, we will remember.
Hasten the dawn.
