There are plenty of tools that are important to any police officer. There’s, of course, the sidearm, the vest, the vehicle, but another factor that’s often overlooked is the communications system. Officers rely on communication throughout their day: getting calls from the station or reaching out to other officers for backup.
In order for any police department to be truly effective, one thing they’ll need is a strong line of communication. At Metropolitan Communications, we’re proud to help police departments throughout Chester County, Delaware County, and Philadelphia, PA, as well as New Castle County, DE, with their wireless communications.
Bi-Directional Amplifier Solutions for Police Departments
When it comes to making the rounds, going on patrol, or simply driving around the jurisdiction waiting for a call, having a strong signal is crucial. To keep in touch with family while you’re out on the job and be able to communicate with your fellow officers or dispatcher, you’ll want to make sure that the radio is clear and uninterrupted.
Of course, depending on where the night takes you, if you’re in a dense apartment building or a distant jobsite investigating suspicious activity, the signal may not be strong enough to reach the other officers or your station’s radio dispatcher. You’ll need something to boost your radio signal to ensure that you’re in contact at all times.
Our telecommunications company can help! By providing your department and officers with Bi-Directional Amplifiers (BDAs), the signals will be stronger and they’ll reach further. Our BDA solutions can ensure that your police radios are always connected to the signal and channels. By having BDAs to boost the signal, you’ll always be able to contact your precinct or department.
Setting Up Telecommunications
Whether you’re stationed in Gloucester, NJ, or Camden County, NJ, having a telecommunications system is vital for when residents in need are trying to contact you to report a crime or incident. At your station, you’ll need an intricate phone system with several lines installed for each officer and department.
Communication also occurs with other municipal departments to establish a line of dialogue as well as keeping other agencies informed of upcoming police strategies or activities.
Our company can help you with the phone line installation, so every officer and department has designated phone lines and menu options. Once we design your telecommunications system, we’ll assist with setting up the lines and implementing the various additional components. This includes:
- Call routing
- Records management
- Voicemails and inboxes
- Digital recording systems
- Management information systems
Two-Way Radios for Police Departments
A two-way radio is not only an important component to the day-to-day operations of a police force, but it’s a part of the uniform. Officers need to have direct contact to the dispatcher to know what to look out for in terms of APBs or to simply keep an eye out for suspicious vehicles or reported activities.
It’s this direct line of communication that allows the police force to uphold the law, arrive at the scene on time, and get urgent messages out to inform other officers out on patrol.
These police radios are also helpful when calling for backup before heading into questionable situations.
Our telecommunications company can help you decide on the one that best fits your department and officers. We’ll design the system for your officers so they can have direct contact with user-friendly radio systems. With our wireless communications systems, your police force will have the direct line they need to safely and securely perform their duties in enforcing the law and protecting the public.
