JHB Group, makers of specialized vehicles for public safety, has developed a special engagement platform for community relations, the Community Outreach Recruitment and Engagement Unit (C.O.R.E.). The first unit is now being delivered to the Panama City (Florida) Police Department.
The C.O.R.E. is a towable unit that serves as an event space with meeting, gaming, and outreach capabilities. Engineered to meet the diverse needs of public safety professionals involved in community relations, each unit features a range of interior components to cater to various requirements, JHB Group says.
Notable among the C.O.R.E.'s features are its sports activities, which are designed to foster high-energy, team-oriented engagement across different age groups, including active participation from law enforcement officers. The trailer introduces the world's first folding flat and telescoping basketball net, adding an exciting dimension to physical activities, the company says.
The C.O.R.E.’s SpeedZone is another sports activity. It lets people test their throwing abilities. Equipped with a built-in radar system, it provides an opportunity to measure the speed of throws, promoting friendly competition and camaraderie.
Gaming enthusiasts will be delighted with The C.O.R.E's gaming stations, the company says. The exterior station is equipped with Xbox, while the interior boasts a PlayStation setup, providing a versatile gaming experience.
Select C.O.R.E. units integrate JHB Group's immersive safety training systems, enhancing the educational component of the platform. These systems cover scenarios such as severe weather, dialing 911, and simulated hazards related to firearms and drug paraphernalia.
“The C.O.R.E. represents a significant leap forward in community policing efforts, fostering stronger bonds between law enforcement agencies and the communities they serve. This innovative platform aligns with our commitment to creating safer and more engaged neighborhoods,” the company says.
