TCI, a brand of The Safariland Group, has introduced an innovative CIPS ("Covert In Plain Sight") Communications Kit for police officers. The new CIPS Kit allows plainclothes officers to remain covert as they transmit communications through standard earbuds commonly associated with smartphones or MP3 players, making it appear as if the operator is listening to music or simply talking on the phone.
Ideal for covert and plainclothes officers, the CIPS Communications Kit connects to a tactical radio and enables two-way communication through the earbud microphone, just like a cell phone. A separate micro PTT (Push-to-Talk) hook-and-loop ring attaches to a fingertip or belt loop, enabling the operator to key the radio and use the microphone in the headset without any indication to outsiders that a tactical radio is in use.
"With the new CIPS Kit, our goal is to allow law enforcement officers to keep open and clear communication with their teams with state-of-the-art equipment," said Scott Carnahan, Vice President, Equipment. "And, by wearing those ubiquitous white earbuds, agents blend into the crowd since no one looks twice when they see someone wearing them."
Engineered for maximum discretion, the CIPS Kit's 60-inch cable is optimal for running smoothly under clothing. The micro PTT ring comes in black or beige to blend in with clothing. The lightweight and low-profile unit also features a quick-detach system with no threaded plugs or hardwired connections, and is compatible with most tactical and patrol radios.
TCI has been designing and manufacturing high-quality products for almost 20 years and is well known for its high-end military and tactical communications systems. With a comprehensive understanding of industry requirements, TCI is entering the retail market with the CIPS Communications Kit to provide the same level of expertise and commitment to the law enforcement community.
The CIPS Communication Kit retails for approximately $140 including white earbuds and can be found at http://ow.ly/LgCG7.
