BCPBA Requests Broward Health Install BDAs In All Hospitals

The Broward County Police Benevolent Association today formally requested that Broward Health begin installing bi-directional amplifiers in all of its hospitals to improve radio communications for law enforcement officers. These amplifiers will strengthen the officer’s radio signal and allow communication to penetrate the building’s construction.

The installation of bi-directional amplifiers is not just a safety issue for law enforcement officers, but for firefighters, EMS and medical personnel, patients and visitors as well. If an incident were to take place in one of these facilities, not just with an in-custody individual, but for those who are Baker- and Marchman-acted as well, any call for assistance will not be heard.

This is an extremely important issue to the Broward County PBA because it involves the safety and protection of law enforcement officers, which we represent over 1,700 throughout Broward County and its municipalities.

Below is our letter to the Broward Health Board Of Commissioners formally requesting the installation of bi-directional amplifiers.
