Your School Resource Officers Want The Security Provided By An ERRCS
(Emergency Responder Radio Coverage System)
School Resource Officers (SROs) are an integral part of providing safety and security on our school campuses. They need to be able to communicate effectively with school administration, other SROs, and emergency responders, so having radios that work properly is essential.
ERRCSs solve the problem of radio dead spots, and provide reliable communication between officers, allowing them to respond quickly when necessary. Investing in ERRCSs will not only make it easier for SROs do their job safely but also improve overall school safety by ensuring that SROs and emergency responders are able to quickly coordinate their actions during emergency situations on campus grounds. An ERRCS is one of the most effective ways to reduce response time during emergencies or threats within a school building.
