Police use joint purchasing power for new radios

Bedfordshire Police, Cambridgeshire Constabulary and Hertfordshire Constabulary recently made use of their joint purchasing power to equip officers from across all three forces with new Sepura SC20 TETRA radios.

By using the radios, officers will benefit from powerful, robust radios with loud, clear audio, ensuring that critical voice communications can be clearly heard and understood, even in noisy environments. The radios are also applications ready, meaning that each force can in time develop bespoke applications to enable quick, secure access to critical data.

Sepura’s radio programming solution Radio Manager can work across different Sepura products, meaning that the transition to new devices is as smooth as possible.

Andy Gregory, Business Development Director at Sepura, said: “After conducting trials, the response from the forces was that the SC20 benefitted from robust design, an intuitive user interface and loud audio, making it ideally suited to the users’ operational needs. The sale is significant to Sepura of course, as Cambridgeshire are Sepura’s ‘home’ force, and many of our staff live in Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire where the new radios are now being deployed.”
