Elevated Risk Operations
Protests, riots, SWAT operations, drugs and firearms arrests, hostage and barricaded subject situations, serving warrants and eviction notices, and other high risk duties often put law enforcement officers, suspects and bystanders in harms way.
The limited broadcast range and poor voice quality inherent in bullhorns and vehicle P.A. systems put officers in close proximity to hazardous situations. Building walls and background noise often impede delivering clearly understood notifications, warnings and instructions. When officers disperse violent crowds, knock on doors or enter structures concealing dangerous perpetrators, the threat of injuries and fatalities greatly increases for officers, suspects and the public.
LRAD systems provide SWAT teams, U.S. Marshalls, DEA and ATF agents and other law enforcement personnel an essential long-range communications capability deployable on the ground and in the air.
LRAD systems broadcast focused, highly intelligible voice messages and warning tones from close range up to 3 kilometers. LRAD’s optimized driver and waveguide technology ensures every broadcast cuts through wind, engine and background noise and is clearly heard and understood, even inside buildings and vehicles.
LRAD systems are rugged, portable, easy to operate and can be temporarily or permanently mounted on cars, armored vehicles and helicopters. LRAD is a force multiplier when a limited number of officers are available to respond to elevated risk operations.
Through the use of powerful voice broadcasts and warning tones, LRAD establishes large safety zones, determines intent at safe distances, resolves uncertain situations and saves lives on both sides of the Long Range Acoustic Device.
Law enforcement and public safety agencies around the world, including over 250 U.S. cities, counties and states, use LRAD systems and support equipment.
