Communications Solutions for Law Enforcement and Police

The daily duties and workload of a police officer is already stressful enough without also having to worry about whether their radios will work when they need them.

Tait has four decades of experience in designing and delivering critical communications solutions in the challenging environments that police face. The Tait difference is the choice we offer—P25 conventional, trunked and simulcast (conventional and trunked) systems across VHF, UHF and 700/800MHz—and that we will take the time to listen to your challenges.

More confidence on patrol

Tait Communications is known for producing radios that are tough, easy-to-use and deliver excellent audio quality and performance. Our radios have core safety features, including programmable emergency settings, such as Lone Worker, Man Down, covert/overt alarms and false power down.

With built-in GPS, Tait P25 radios are used for managing fleets of vehicles and tracking personnel. Tait mobiles have a GPS display that can show latitude and longitude coordinates, which is ideal for locating incidents in remote areas and off-road.

Even in the loudest environments Tait P25 radios transmit crystal-clear audio by minimizing background noises. Our radios are also designed with MDC1200 capability, industry alarm features and IS options for user safety.

Greater security

At Tait, we understand the importance of secure communications and are experts at delivering encryption to improve the safety of first responders. FIPS 140-2 certified encryption can be delivered to radios in the field by the Key Fill Device or with Over-the-Air Rekeying (OTAR) via the Key Management Facility, enabling operational flexibility and ensuring only the right people take the right calls.

Exceptional usability

From an intentionally firm volume control to prevent accidental bumps and knocks, to dual-shot molding for durability, Tait portable radios are skilfully designed for the challenging environments of emergency responders. The range of different options—custom head colors, dual-heads, hand-held control head and remote installation options—enable users to design the best setup for their needs.

We design and deliver communications systems that deliver optimum coverage to on-hip portables, ensuring that officers can communicate in critical situations that develop away from the patrol vehicle. The radios also have a unique and patented battery clasp mechanism that eliminates any threat of the battery dislodging if a radio is dropped.

Interoperable and compliant

We ensure that our products meet regulatory compliance standards and interoperability tests, enabling you to upgrade and expand your fleet when you have funds available.

The Department of Homeland Security recommends that agencies - especially those receiving federal grants for interoperable communications - purchase equipment that has passed P25 CAP testing. Our P25 base stations, portables and mobiles have been tested in the P25 compliance assessment program with other leading manufacturers. This also means that a Tait solution will work seamlessly with a state-wide network and other P25 compliant products and networks.

Future-proof investment

Tait P25 solutions are a future-proof investment because of the network's digital backbone and compliance with the FCC's 12.5 kHz narrowbanding requirements. Our P25 solutions can be migrated from analog to digital when budget and needs permit, and then on to future advancements of the technology for the best spectral efficiency.

Complete solutions

We take the time to understand your challenges in order to deliver the best solution for your needs. Tait engineers design, deploy and support our communications solutions, and we work with the best technology partners to provide third-party applications that work seamlessly with Tait solutions.
