WORN BY OFFICERS FOR PROTECTION. THE ARMOUR CAME INTO SERVICE IN THE EARLY 80S - FIRST WORN ON A VOLUNTARY BASIS - BUT, ULTIMATELY, IT BECAME SO POPULAR THAT MOST ALL OF THE POLICE WORE THEM UNDER THEIR SHIRTS. BETWEEN 2008 AND 2009, LETHBRIDGE REGIONAL POLICE SERVICES INSPECTOR BILL KAYE ADDED THAT THE FIRST MEMBERS TO WEAR THEM "PURCHASED THEIR OWN". *UPDATE* IN 2014 COLLECTIONS ASSISTANT JANE EDMUNDSON CONDUCTED A SURVEY OF ART OBJECTS, INCLUDING SOME DONATED BY THE CITY OF LETHBRIDGE POLICE SERVICES.

REMOTE RADIO IS USED IN CONJUCTION WITH DISPATCH MICROPHONE, P19960112069 AND PHONE, P19960112070. SEE ALSO MOTOROLA REPEATER P19930061000. INFO BELOW WAS DEVELOPED FOR A POLICE EXHIBIT INSTALLED IN NOVEMBER 2007. DURING THE YEAR PRIOR, MUSEUM TECH KEVIN MACLEAN SPOKE TO NEARLY A DOZEN RETIRED AND SERVING OFFICERS IN ADDITION TO FORMER CIVILIAN DISPATCHER ANNE TODD AND CITY ELECTRIC DEPARTMENT EMPLOYEE BILL STANTON. WRITTEN SOURCES INCLUDED THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD, ANNUAL POLICE CHEIF REPORTS AND THE BADGE AND THE BLOTTER. FOR AN IN DEPTH HISTORY OF THE RADIO, PLEASE REFERENCE THE PERMANENT FILE. AMONG ALL THE TOOLS USED BY POLICE TO CONDUCT THEIR WORK, FEW ARE AS SIGNIFICANT AS THOSE CALLED UPON WHEN POLICE NEED TO COMMUNICATE. FROM THE 1920S UNTIL THE MID-60S, “BEAT” PATROL OFFICERS WERE DEPENDENT ON A HANDFUL OF STREET-BASED “SIGNAL LIGHTS” AS THEIR SOLE MEANS OF POLICE COMMUNICATION (REF. ARCHIVAL PHOTO P19800122010-GP). CONTROLLED BY A SWITCH PANEL IN THE POLICE STATION, THE RED AND GREEN SIGNAL LIGHTS COMMUNICATED AN ELABORATE CODE TO PATROLMEN ON THE CENTRAL (1ST TO 6TH AVENUES BETWEEN 5TH AND 9TH STREETS) AND WEST (1ST TO 6TH AVENUES WEST OF 5TH STREET) BEATS. DEPENDENT ON THE LIGHTS’ ILLUMINATED COLOUR(S) AND SOLID-LIT OR FLASHING STATE, POLICEMEN KNEW IF THEY OR OTHERS WERE TO IMMEDIATELY PHONE THE STATION FROM ANY NUMBER OF HOTELS OR 24-HR BUSINESSES. IN 1952, THE FORCE INSTALLED ITS FIRST 2-WAY RADIOS IN ITS THREE TRAFFIC PATROL VEHICLES. SEVEN YEARS LATER, A CAMPAIGN WAS LAUNCHED TO ACQUIRE AND EVALUATE HANDHELD RADIOS AND, BY 1965, ALL MEMBERS, INCLUDING THOSE WALKING THE “BEATS”, HAD IMMEDIATE RADIO CONTACT WITH THE STATION. THIS SECOND GENERATION REMOTE RADIO UNIT (MOTOROLA) WAS ACQUIRED IN THE EARLY 60S AND FEATURED NEW SEMI-CONDUCTOR TECHNOLOGY. FROM THE STATION, AUDIO SIGNALS WERE SENT OUT VIA LANDLINE TO A MOTOROLA TRANSMITTER/ RECEIVER LOCATED ON THE TOP OF THE LETHBRIDGE WATER TOWER ON MAYOR MAGRATH DRIVE. FROM THERE, THE SIGNAL WAS TRANSMITTED THROUGH THE AIR TO VEHICLE-BASED OR HANDHELD 2-WAY RADIOS. ANN TODD WAS HIRED BY THE CITY POLICE FORCE IN 1962 AS A CLERK/ STENOGRAPHER. OVER THE YEARS, SHE OPERATED THE MOTOROLA RADIO (REF. PHOTO IN ARCHIVES COLLECTION), BUT WAS RESTRICTED TO ACKNOWLEDGING AND TRANSMITTING ONLY THE SIMPLEST OF MESSAGES. THE COMPLAINTS DESK CONSTABLE WAS THE PRIMARY USER OF THE RADIO, DISPATCHING CARS AND RECEIVING REPORTS. IN 1975/76, THE “RADIO ROOM” AND THE MOTOROLA RADIO WERE REPLACED BY A “COMMUNICATIONS CENTRE” WHICH, WAS SITUATED ACROSS THE HALL FROM THE COMPLAINTS DESK. NEW CENTRE EQUIPMENT INCLUDED A SWITCHBOARD, A REEL-TO-REEL INCOMING CALL RECORDER, A CANADIAN POLICE INFORMATION CENTRE (CPIC) COMPUTER AND A “DEAF PHONE” IN ADDITION TO MONITORING INTERNAL CCTV CAMERA MONITORS (REF. ARCHIVAL PHOTO COLLECTION). *UPDATE* IN 2014 COLLECTIONS ASSISTANT JANE EDMUNDSON CONDUCTED A SURVEY OF ART OBJECTS, INCLUDING SOME DONATED BY THE CITY OF LETHBRIDGE POLICE SERVICES. FOR A BRIEF ACCOUNT OF THE LETHBRIDGE POLICE COLLECTION, SEE RECORD P19960112001.
