A Tait radio is not just a solitary product, but a platform that supports a range of great accessories. The right choice of accessories can help keep first responders and officers safe and connected when serving their communities.
We recommend tailoring each user’s experience, the device and the accessories that accompany it to reflect the intensity of their industry and role in their agency. In 2019, it was reported that there were over 800,000 police officers in the US alone. Each of these officers needs a communications device, and those devices can better serve officers with a battery that is the right balance of weight and shift-life, carry accessories for security, and the right audio accessories – such as speaker mics and ear-pieces. Accessories allow you to optimize particular aspects of your comms devices, allowing calls to be heard first time during normal operations and emergencies.
