University of Utah Campus Police Department Selects FreeLinc


May 1, 2010 – Orem, UT – FreeLinc, the world leader in Near Field Magnetic Induction Communication technology, is excited to announce that the University of Utah’s Police Department has selected our secure wireless systems for use by their sworn campus officers.

FreeLinc’s FreeMic 200 and FreeMotion 100 will provide their officers with communication systems for their portable radios without the hazards and hassles of typical corded or wired systems. Both systems interface to the portable radio through a FreeLinc adapter. The adapter provides a second push to talk option allowing their officers to always maintain a defensive posture and discretion when transmitting. The FreeMic 200 speaker microphone boasts up to 50 hours of continuous talk time on a single charge. The FreeMotion 100 is FreeLinc’s newest wireless device. It’s a lightweight, single ear headset resembling those commonly used with mobile phones.

“The University of Utah Police Department was looking for a solution to replace our existing wired mobile communications link. The old system was fragile, often broken or intermittently out of service. We found what we were looking for in FreeLinc. The FreeLinc system provides reliable, wireless operation, good technical support, and works in some of our more unique environments. We have fully deployed the FreeLinc system in our Police Department, and we are currently evaluating it for our non-sworn security staff,” stated University of Utah Chief of Police, Scott Folsom.

“We are proud to have the University of Utah as our customer,” stated Randy Bailey, FreeLinc Chairman and President. “We are eager to continue to provide Chief Folsom and his officers the quality products and support they have come to expect from FreeLinc for their important campus security mission at University of Utah.”
