“Communication On those major incidents emergency call outs, high risk search warrants, barricades, anything like that. Communication is often the first thing to fall apart. And with this, we’ve had a much easier time communicating from one team member to the next, which ultimately can play a whole role in how successful the outcome of that operation is.”Sgt. Devin Baker – Brooke County Sheriff’s Department
