South African Police on the ball with Tait radios

Thursday, 21 June, 2007

The South African Police Service (SAPS) has chosen to use Tait radios and has committed to a new two-year multi-million dollar contract.

SAPS is purchasing Tait radios as part of its ongoing efforts to improve public safety; especially in the lead-up to the 2010 Soccer World Cup, which will be hosted by South Africa.

The last agreement with SAPS in 2004 was for thousands of portable and mobile radios worth more than $6 million to Tait. With radios being purchased in advance of the next soccer world cup, and with a force numbering 126,000, this new contract is likely to be larger than before.

The radios purchased by SAPS are customised to suit the needs of that particular force and designed and built in Christchurch, New Zealand.

"No police force is the same and whether they need P25 digital, trunked solutions, over the air rekeying or any other smart features, they know they can turn to Tait," Tait Electronics Limited's managing director, Michael Chick said.
