Two Way Radio for Local Government

Local councils require high quality, scalable two way radio products to move with their demands.

SFL Mobile Radio supply solutions to local councils throughout the UK including town halls, recreation centres, large libraries, museums, golf courses, the transporting of vulnerable patients between carers. SFL will provide a solution whether it be localised coverage or wide area.

Wirral Borough Council has recently installed a state-of-the-art digital Motorola system, WirralNET, for their community safety team. Each operative carries a portable radio which allows the control room to GPS track each guard across the Wirral peninsular via their central control room which consists of a TRBOnet tracking system.

The buildings that the community safety team protect are geo-fenced within the control room, so that when an operative enters or leaves the geo-fence, the lone worker function is automatically enabled or disabled and a text message is received by the operative informing them that they are being monitored for added safety. If the lone worker alert is not acknowledged by the guard an alarm is set off in the control room and the exact location of the officer will be clearly shown on the map.

The system also allows for example, building managers to play back routes and obtain reports as proof a building is being monitored.
