Newly Released: Whelen Carbide

April 10th, 2017


Whelen’s New CenCom Carbide Siren & Switch Controller is making strides for it’s officer safety advances. Based on the decade old CenCom siren switch controller Carbide with CANport can do so much more.

Carbide has the capability to plug directly into vehicles OBD-II port and receive real time vehicle signals:  park brake, brake pedal, transmission positions, any/each door open, hatch door, engine RPM, vehicle speed, fuel level, park lamps, low/high beams, turn signals, doors locked/unlocked, hazard lights, seatbelts status, key switch status, just to name a few!  So without having to cut factory wires, and spending hours to hunt signal wires, a quick software program allows you to do things like this:

  • Opening the driver’s door shuts off the corners of the lightbar as to not blind the officer.
  • Putting the vehicle into park changes the entire car’s flash pattern to a slower less confusing pattern.
  • Putting the vehicle in reverse activates a pair of rear white LED lights.
  • Stepping on the brake pedal during a two car pursuit changes the pattern in the lightbar making it obvious to the officer in the trailing car that the lead car is braking.
  • Exceeding a certain speed changes the flash patterns on the vehicle.
  • Hit the airhorn and have a wall of flashing white light activate or change the lightbar pattern to a more rapid flash rate to clear intersections.
  • Turn your high beams on all white light in the lightbar turns on.
  • Activate your hazards and automatically flash a pair of amber lights in your lightbar synched to the hazards.
  • Put your vehicle in park and automatically shut down lights, go to low power or turn off your emitter.
  • Enable “Hands-Free Lighting” so when you switch from wail to yelp to piercer tone lightbar flash patterns automatically change to increase your visual presence.
  • Perfect for Fire Response Vehicles.
  • Dual siren tone capable.
  • Multiple style control heads available
  • Simple software programming.
  • 5 year warranty.

Contact us for a demonstration of what Carbide can do to increase officer safety and provide an extra layer of protection when responding to emergencies or when you are parked on the roadway. We have two of our demo vehicles fully equipped with Carbide. Ride under Whelen’s protection!

July 6th, 2015


Magnetic Mic was created by an active duty police officer and is relied on by first responders across the country.

Replace the conventional hang-up clip

You replace your microphone’s hang-up clip with a magnetic base piece – it easily retrofits into most standard mounting locations – then slide the slotted metal disc onto the back of the microphone

Install in minutes – It’s as easy as 1-2-3

All you need is 1, Magnetic Mic, a number 2 Phillips screwdriver, and about 3 minutes of time. Each Magnetic Mic comes with the necessary hardware and complete, easy-to-follow instructions.

Just get the mic close and let it go

When you’re finished with the microphone, simply get it close to the Magnetic Mic base piece.  Then just let it go, and the magnet guides it into place.  There’s no need to take your eyes off the road.

Keep your radio system grounded

Whether your radio system functions with an on-hook / off-hook setting, switches to a private line or scans when hung up, Magnetic Mic will work with your radio system.  Grounding instructions and hardware are included with every Magnetic Mic.

The Pioneer Nano… a small, but not slight, bright light

March 21st, 2014

If you have a need for white light in a small space, this is your answer.  An alley light, backup light, grill light, tow illumination, work light, spot light or flood… the list goes on and on.  The Nano series, like the Micro, gives you 4 different lenses so you can chose how to use your light.  This light gives you that versatility, so instead of buying a spot light and a flood, just change the lens.   Oh, and talk about a light that will fit most anywhere, no light of this size packs such a bright punch.

Need Space for the Tallest Officers?
Think Half Cage Pro-cell

     For years, Pro-gard has been known for it’s Pro-cell Prisoner Containment Systems.  The way they compartmentalize the back seat to better confine prisoners is celebrated.
     In  recent years, with the space in Police Package Vehicles diminishing, one of the more popular prisoner containment systems is the P1000. The  P1000, a half cage Pro-cell,  does not impede driver seat space – AT ALL.  You retain full seat function and motion.
     The half partition in the P1000 stops in the center of the back seat, behind the console, leaving the entire SPACE behind the driver completely unobstructed. This allows the tallest officers freedom to set the seat travel and recline as they would normally be able to in a vehicle without a partition.
 The clear, poly carbonate divider panel then splits the back seat in half to completely confine the prisoner to the side behind the passenger seat (and partition). With the seat cordoned off, this opens up the SPACE behind the driver for storage which, is completely off limits to the prisoner.
These features put together with Pro-gard’s affordable pricing should allow any fleet budget the ability to keep officers safe and comfortable while still able to transport a prisoner in the field.
