With knife and sharp instrument crime increasing according to the Commons Library, it is vital to make sure all your staff are safe when dealing with the general public. Security guards have to be prepared for anything, especially a sharp weapon being brought to the scene.

Delayed responses to the main office can cause confusion and Team B just aren’t picking up the phone. Maybe it’s time to replace your current communicating devices with a fast and reliable system without relying on them answering the phone.
Two way radios for security guards are a great form of communication devices. With many different models offering an array of features, we can help find the perfect solution for you.

Your radios can be connected to different accessories including a radio earpiece which you can find out below!
No More Signal Issues
In addition to regular two way radios, you may benefit from using POC (Push-to-talk over cellular). Do you find yourself struggling with contacting your team at the same time? Or do they struggle with signal when on patrol?
Push-to-talk over cellular may be your solution, especially for Security. Working on cellular, Wi-Fi and 4G to keep you connected to the rest of the radio fleet nationwide. POC radio also gives you the advantage of their one-to-many system, communicating with all your staff at once, especially with the GPS Mapping feature which helps you locate specific radios and thus specific members of staff.
Loud and Clear
Hands free is the way to go! No need to hand-carry any device and your hands are free for any unexpected scuffles. Having a voice in your ear helps to understand any communication loud and clear without having to struggle against background noise to hear your colleague.
A radio earpiece keeps the communication flowing and makes it easier for the security guards to be kept up to date without having to have a hand-on the security walkie talkie 24/7. We do a variety of earpieces for you to choose from; from D-shaped, to surveillance, it’s up to you!
We also offer a range of noise-cancelling headsets. Specifically used for noisier environments such as club door security or events, to protect your staff’s hearing. You will also receive clear communication through your security walkie talkie.
