When you think about everything that happens in a courthouse and municipal buildings on a daily basis, it’s easy to see why security guards in these stations require reliable communication equipment.
Courthouses regularly hold hearings and trials, as well as final rulings from the judge in ongoing cases. These are sometimes stressful, heated situations that can bring unexpected actions from the defendant, plaintiff, or attendees. It’s these moments in particular that require quick action and reliable communication to maintain the safety of everyone in the building. Reliable two-way radios can be the deciding factor in successfully calling for backup officers or other appropriate reinforcements.
While these types of heated moments aren’t necessarily everyday happenings, security in these courthouses and other municipal buildings is best for everyone’s safety. In these buildings, there are judges, as mentioned above, as well as other public officials that can be polarizing to many people. For the security stationed at the front of these locations, reliable communication equipment is a requirement for maximum building safety. These security officers stand at the front of the building and check for any banned items before anyone can make their way through the building. Being able to communicate in real-time by way of two-way radio makes these processes run smoothly and efficiently for all involved.
