Swedish Police Place First Order for Hearing Protection Communications
Monday, October 21, 2019 | Comments

Invisio received a first order for communications and hearing protection systems from the Swedish Police. The order value is 19 million Swedish krona (US$2 million), and deliveries are planned for before the end of the year.

The framework agreements with the Swedish Police for communication equipment with active hearing protection were announced earlier this month.

"This is a substantial investment to strengthen the police's ability to communicate in noisy environments while protecting our colleagues' hearing," said Per Olov Olsson, assignment leader at the Swedish Police. “It is our intention to make this solution available to as many police officers as possible who are at risk of exposure to high noise levels.”

Invisio estimates that the framework agreements cover thousands of police officers and that their potential value is between 50 million and 70 million Swedish krona (US$5 million to US$7.5 million). The agreements run for two years with an option for the police to extend them by another two years. The framework agreements do not guarantee any volumes, but call-off will be as needed.

The agreements with the Swedish Police refer to the Police Authority, Police Academies, Swedish Security Service and the Swedish Economic Crime Authority.

Well our local police force also just partnered with this brand called Big Ear that manufactures hearing protection communications systems. It's great that people are being more aware of hearing conservation.
