Boynton Beach PD has deployed bluePRINT™ in their department’s patrol fleet to save officer lives. However, Captain Matthew Zeller and Dana Safety Supply’s Jose Fernando wanted to take bluePRINT™ in a new direction. They were able to incorporate our system into the remodel of Boynton Beach’s new training range.
By incorporating 70 independently operated tri-color mPOWER™ lights, a 200 watt siren, and sound system Boynton Beach’s instructors can now create real life training situations. Using a small radio remote the instructor can flash the LED lights red/blue, steady burn, or do any combination of both.
Recently, I was invited to a press conference to showcase their new facility and give five reporters the actual training experience that the Boynton Beach officers complete.
There were four different situations that the trainer put the reporters through using simulation rounds in actual fire arms. After everyone had completed the session, each was debriefed and talked about what they saw, how they felt and how they reacted. By the end of the morning each reporter expressed a new found level of understanding respect for what officers face out on the street.
Watch some some of the reports here:
This is another example of SoundOff Signal Dealers and agencies discovering new and creative ways to use bluePRINT™ to keep officers safe.
