Gould Electronics supply and support multiple schemes across the South West, providing instant communication between retailers, local police, PCSOs and CCTV control rooms. Gould's have rental plans and outright purchase schemes to meet your needs. Packages available from £5.00 per radio per week.

Protect your business

It is now a fact of modern life that there is a higher incidence of anti-social behaviour, with retail staff increasingly becoming the victims of crimes of a more violent nature. Gould’s are helping to promote a sense of security for customers and staff and improve police/licensee liaison by providing two-way radio and other dedicated services such as links to CCTV control rooms.

Stay in touch

Local police and PCSO’s may also be carrying a ShopWatch radio and can respond to a shop or venue’s request for assistance. People visiting a premises that operates a “ShopWatch” system are made aware by means of posters and window stickers. This reinforces the message that staff are connected and able to interact with other shops, as well as the police and PCSOs, if necessary.

Support your staff

The ShopWatch system is not intended to replace calling 999 in an emergency nor 101 to report an incident but is intended to complement existing communication channels. It can be used to exchange information on known criminal activity with the police, to report a lost child or to reach out for first aid help where a customer may have suffered a medical emergency.

Scheme endorsement

Braunton’s Police Sgt. Andy Brock said about their system: “Braunton is one of the safest communities in the country. The ShopWatch initiative show that the police, local businesses and Safer North Devon are working hard to ensure that it stays that way.”

Recommendation

Carol Harding of Safer North Devon, the organisation that helped fund Braunton’s radio link, said: “Experience from other schemes we have introduced in Bideford, Ilfracombe and Westward Ho! already shows how effective a community radio link can be.”

ShopWatch radio network

Our bespoke ShopWatch systems have an antenna mounted within the town centre. This type of installation provides clear audio quality between all members, PCSOs and/or the police, outdoors or indoors. The system also benefits from having an IP connection to a CCTV control centre.
