ALERTS / BULLET
The Area-wide Law Enforcement Radio Terminal System (ALERTS) and the Basic Unified Local Law Enforcement Transmission (BULLET) are in-car computer terminal systems developed for public safety. ALERTS operates via an 800MHz infrastructure; BULLET operates via cellular; 800MHz; or both. These systems provide instant access to information in situations where each second counts. During traffic stops, officers can get information about a car and its owner in a matter of seconds on their ALERTS / BULLET terminals. Getting the same information from a police dispatcher over a two-way radio can take several minutes and place the officer in danger. In addition to promoting officer safety, ALERTS / BULLET has proven effective at helping police recover stolen vehicles and arrest suspects wanted for crimes in Illinois and throughout the country.
ALERTS and BULLET were developed through a cooperative effort of local law enforcement and IPSAN. ALERTS / BULLET is the largest wireless / RF public safety network in Illinois. While most other mobile data systems are developed and operated for single agencies, ALERTS and BULLET were designed for a large network of users. The mini-BULLET application allows law enforcement to access information from any hand held device (smart phone, iPad, DROID, iPhone etc). This is the perfect officer-safety tool.
