A VIPER Mobile Radio Upgrade from Sales to Service

Posted by Loryn Smith on Apr 4, 2016 8:23:35 AM


A Team Effort for the Hoke County Sheriff's Department

Recently the Hoke County Sheriff's Department decided to upgrade their mobile two-way radios for use with the Statewide VIPER Communication System and we were glad to be their choice for help with this project.
