Download this PoliceOne radios buying guide to learn key steps for product selection, purchasing and implementation
Radios are an essential piece of equipment for first responders.
Reliable radios are central to effective command and control, and situational awareness, and enable commanders to communicate with their own people, other assisting agencies and the governments they serve in real time. Without reliable communications, officers cannot protect their personnel and the public effectively. A first responder radio must be consistently reliable to fulfill its function. Nothing less will do.
The purpose of this guide is to help first responder agencies identify, purchase and implement the most reliable, suitable radios for their needs.
This is not a one-size-fits-all scenario: What works well for a police department in a dense urban area might not be best for a fire/EMS department in a large rural jurisdiction. This is why finding the right radio requires a carefully researched, thoroughly planned process.
Whether you are leading a radio purchase for the first time or are looking to upgrade your current assets, this PoliceOne How to Buy Radios guide is a starting point for the procurement process.
