In the fight against retail crime and anti-social behaviour information is power.
Timely information about suspicious characters or perceived threats allows you to act. Whilst CCTV provides the eyes a shopwatch radio system provides the ears.
RADIOLINK™ and CENTRELINK™ are Patterson Electronics’ award winning shopwatch radio systems. They are very simple systems that allow you to share useful information – whether this is retailer to retailer, licensed premises to licensed premises, CCTV control room and/or security staff to retailers and tenants or vice versa.
Patterson Electronics Ltd’s highly successful RADIOLINK and CENTRELINK systems are by far the most widely used throughout Northern Ireland and it has proved to be a major contributor to the reduction in instances in retail crime and antisocial behaviour.
Whilst RADIOLINK enhances CCTV it can also be used very effectively where no CCTV exists. Criminal elements recognise the RADIOLINK logo, and are now more likely to avoid premises that display it.
REMEMBER the more users on RADIOLINK, the greater the flow of information and the more powerful you become in the fight against retail crime and antisocial behaviour.
