How a Law Enforcement Officer's Desire to Protect Life Became a Poster Child for Multi-Agency Communications Interoperability

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Each of the entities involved in Clallam County use completely different methods of communication, from landlines and cell phones to radios broadcasting on VHF, UHF, 700 MHz and 800 MHz frequencies. With the need to communicate both on a daily basis and in the event of an emergency, the use of completely disparate technologies made inter-agency communication difficult, inefficient, and at times, dangerous. OPSCAN, however, recognized that the sheer scope of participating agencies meant pursuing radio system upgrades was not an effective option. They needed to find a solution that could integrate all of their disparate individual technologies into a single unified system. The only technology with a proven ability to accomplish that goal was WAVE from Twisted Pair Solutions.
