Arizona Governor Doug Ducey signed a bill that allocates millions in funding to keep Arizona schools safe. The program is designed to improve security in Arizona schools and reduce response times to dangerous incidents.
Once accepted by the host agency, your school or police department is funded and included in the project. Don’t delay! Mutualink is ready to help get you started.

Ready to take the next step, schedule a meeting with Andy Williams, your Client Success Executive. You can choose a time best suited for you and your team here.
During your technical workshop, we will introduce you to our delivery and installation teams, provide a high-level overview of the project, and discuss detailed information we will need to move forward. You may want to consider inviting the following people to join you in the meeting:
IT AdministratorThis person should have a thorough understanding of the networks and firewall, have intimate knowledge of routers and switches, and should possess the authority and root passwords to assign static IP addresses, as well as have complete control of firewall port forwarding rules. They will also need to understand your internet environment, make decisions concerning the use of internal connections, or whether to commission cable or DSL modems.
Radio Communications ManagerThis person should have a thorough understanding of the radio system, can determine whether to transmit and receive frequency data and understand wideband vs. narrow band, PL, and DCS tones, and can determine if the radio environment is repeated, simplex, conventional, or trunked. Further, this person will need knowledge of the FCC license, understands the coverage area of the radio system, and can make recommendations as to placements of control stations and antennas.
Facility Manager This person is familiar with all the work areas, understands equipment power requirements, understands house cabling and the location of network jacks. etc. This person can coordinate the placement of equipment and ensure the availability of AC power outlets, etc.
The Mutualink technology goes beyond just radios. Our solution brings in all critical information – voice, video, and data resources together on an easy-to-use platform. Arizona’s state-funded school safety interoperability communications system meets legislative technical requirements and connects schools directly with law enforcement in an emergency.
