Radio Upgrade

In September our radio system had an upgrade. All the Lowland Recue teams in the Thames Valley Police area now have an enhanced ability to communicate with each other on our own digital, encrypted, secure network.

As well as mobile repeaters (transmitters) in our Incident Control Vehicles, there are static repeaters on telecoms masts across Bucks and the Thames Valley policing region that allow us to communicate and coordinate search and other emergency activity between the team members, team operations control and between teams, maximising the organisational and operational coverage across the region.

Pictured are the ICVs of Midshires, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire Search and Rescue teams.
