Derry, New Hampshire - (April 22, 2020) - As part of a recent LMR system upgrade, the Derry New Hampshire Police Department recently installed CompassCom’s GPS tracking system for police vehicles and handheld radios.

Shortly after installation of CompassTrac, one of our officers called out via APX radio that he was engaged in a hot foot pursuit chase of a wanted person. Utilizing the CompassTrac software, the shift commander immediately polled that officer’s portable radio and within seconds had a precise, geographic location of that officer displayed on the CompassTrac map at his desk as well as on the dispatcher’s workstations. Back up officers were immediately dispatched to respond to the area and the suspect was quickly apprehended. “Since the initial installation, several months ago, we have experienced top-notch service and prompt response to any questions we may have had by the technicians and engineers at CompassCom,” said Derry’s Police.
