The Swedish Police have selected Swedish Radio Supply as the continued supplier of vehicle terminals for use on the Swedish Rakel TETRA network for the next two years, with the option for an additional two year extension.

Swedish Radio Supply was announced as the supplier of TETRA handheld terminals back in March, for the same time period. It has been the main supplier of TETRA terminals, support, and accessories, since the Swedish Police joined RAKEL in 2006, when they first started to use Sepura terminals.

"We are so proud to be a supplier to Sweden's largest radio user. For us it is an important acknowledgment that the job we do is both appreciated and performed professionally," said Jonas Hoke, senior business and customer manager for the Police at Swedish Radio Supply.

The TETRA mobile terminal chosen by the police is the Sepura SRG3900. It operates on the same platform as other Sepura terminals in operation, so the the interface and menus used between a hand-held and a vehicle-mounted terminal are identical – removing the need for users to learn different user interfaces.

The SRG3900 has integrated GPS, functionality, 10W output, security functions, encryption and night mode and is designed for flexible installation with a a large number of sound options.

The Swedish Police currently use Sepura's terminals across all their operational divisions, including dog teams, helicopter teams, mountain rescue and border control units, the Sea Police, mounted Police units and Segway patrol teams from Sweden’s larger towns.
