Staffordshire Police has awarded a £1 million contract to Sepura for both hand portable and mobile terminals.

Staffordshire completes the quartet of Midlands’ regional forces using Sepura TETRA radios, alongside West Midlands, West Mercia and Warwickshire.

The contract includes 2,500 SRH3900 hand-held and more than 200 SRG3900 mobile radios with Sepura Colour Consoles (SCCs).

The TETRA radios will enable Staffordshire Police officers to communicate effectively across the force’s area of more than 2,600 sq km. The SRG3900, with 10W RF power, gives the greatest operational range of

any TETRA radio and, as such, was selected by Staffordshire Police as one of three forces which, together with West Midlands and West Mercia, form part of the Central Motorway Police.

Inspector Derek Roberts, Staffordshire Police, explained: “The Central Motorway Police unit provides policing for the very busy, high-traffic West Midlands motorway network. Sepura’s TETRA radios have, in the past, assisted the unit in keeping the motorway network running smoothly. In addition, the reliability and performance of both hand-held and mobile radios has allowed us to fulfil our mission to keep our communities safe and reassured.”
